“Boring, not worth the ticket”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We bought a "walking around" ticket which proved to be nothing more than a short walk with a lot of blocked areas. Its mostly to get a view, which was in itself rather dull. No signs or notes are provided to give context to the place.

“A piece of Hungarian history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

If you have ever longed to see a bit of 15-16th century Hungarian history, the Eger Castle is a must see. Used to defend the onslaught of the Turkish advancement in the early 16th century this fortification stopped the advancement of a Turkish army in the 1550's that was 10 times greater than the existing fortification of approximately 2000 . Istvan Dobo, the head of the Hungarian cavalry and army at that time is of course a hero to be remembered in the Hungarian heritage.

Take the time and visit the Eger Castle.
