  Eger panorama from the fortress walls

Eger, town of Hungarian baroque
Dominated by the medieval fortress where in the Middle age hungarians stopped turkish conquest troops. Fortress has about 5 levels with long tangled undeground passages perfect for holding the long sieges and also for getting lost there :)
Our guide told us that once a guy from the tourist group decided to 'walk' in 1 of such passages. The whole group of 48!!! people was looking for him a half of day. Finally they found him somewhere in the middle of the passage, in complete darkness because the battery in his light needed the recharge and he had to stop.

Address: north-east oh Hungary

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
