This RC cathedral is a must-see in Eger first of all because of its internal beauty. The building itself is not too remarkable, but inside I can say, a treasure.

The basilica is more notable for it's size than for anything else. It's not particularly old, and the decorations are surpassed by many other churches and cathedrals in Hungary. The best thing about this place is that they have organ concerts. The sound of a...More
