Eger Castle Reviews
Замок не представляет из себя никакого интереса . Коллекция очень скудная, эпохи перемешана. Всё по- венгерски.

Tip: Do not take audio guide, only for nothing spend money, the numbers on the plan and the text of the audio guide does not match at all. Not recommended, not interesting.
Swietny zamek w centrum Eger,widoczny z kazdej strony.Ciekawy pod kazdym wzgledem jest tam takze element Polski.Bardzo dobra restauracja u gory,swietne miejsca tematyczne.Najwieksze wrazenie robi jedn... more »Great Castle in the center of Eger, visible from each side. Interesting in every regard there is also a part of Poland. Very good restaurant, great location. The biggest impression, however, does the view from the top of Eger.
Actually one of the coolest castles I've visited in Europe. Extremely old, but full of I treating details and information. Students also get in free which is absolutely amazing! Wish I had more time to explore this spot.
Nice place! Inside there are few expositions about the history of this castle. People who are working there are really welcoming even is they don't know English. Btw, in case you are younger than 26 years - you can enter for free - just need to show the ID.
