Torok Kori Minaret is the northest Minaret in Europe, located in the center of the old town of Eger. Here you can see only the minaret, becaue the mosque yet not exist in the place. Historical and interesting place, not more.

Until recent events, this minaret was the most northern in Europe. Being a relic of the Ottoman Empire, from the 1500’s it is worth the stop but it is in a very busy intersection and is not in use today.

It is always interesting to visit Eger mainly because of its heritage. This tower (minaret) from the Turkish times is an amazing example of it.

The northest located minaret in Europe originating from the 16th century. It is worth to climb those stairs for the view. However no it is being renovated from the outside therefore do not expect historic photos.

At the time I visited, the minaret was undergoing restoration work and you can't see the structure itself distinctly as it was covered up. Hugely disappointing. On the plus side, you can see the obstruction from far away so at least you won't waste your...More

I had a splendid view of the 17th century Minaret from the Eger Castle. It really soared in the City Centre and reminded one of the time of Ottoman Turks' rule in the past. I did not make any attempt when I visited the city...More
