Full description
Spend the day in the picturesque town of Eger, the 2nd largest city in northern Hungary, and best known for its castle, thermal baths, Turkish minaret and baroque buildings. Flanked by the Bükk Hills of the Northern Uplands, it is also where the rich Bull’s Blood wine of Egri Bikavér is produced. During the tour, you will visit the 19th-century neoclassical Cathedral and facing Lyceum, with its 20,000 volume library and famous Specula and Planetary Museum. See the baroque Minorite Church and intricate wrought iron gate of Fazola at County Hall. Go to Eger Castle, built in the 13th century after the Mongol invasion, and located at the top of the cobblestone streets of Dózsa György tér. Your tour includes entrance to the castle, where you can see historic statues and paintings. After optional lunch and a wine tasting in the valley of Szépasszony-völgy, continue to Egerszalók at the foothills of the Bükk. Relax at one of the best spas in town, where 2 thermal springs emerge as geysers near the settlement border.
