Among Hungarians, Eger is a symbol of national pride. During the 16th Century the Kingdom of Hungary was conquered by the Ottoman Empire. The town of Eger, however, held out bravely through a prolonged siege. One of the most popular monuments in the town is the slender minaret, which is the northernmost Ottoman minaret in Europe.Recommended for:

A great day trip on the train from Budapest! After strolling through the town and its many historic buildings, make sure you go to "The valley of the beautiful women." Here you can go into many wine caves and sample a huge variety of wines. The best part is filling a plastic jug of wine for the train trip back to Budapest.
