Torok Kori Minaret, Eger

3.4
A soaring structure dominating the skyline of Eger, Torok Kori Minaret remains one of the city's main claims to fame. In a town packed with landmark buildings, this structure rises above the surrounding area and reminds visitors of a time when Ottoman Turks ruled this part of Europe. Constructed in the 17th century, the minaret stands 40 m (130 ft) and offers unbeatable views of the city center. One of only three remaining minarets in all of Hungary, it draws huge crowds on a daily basis. If you don't like heights and tight spaces, see what the minaret looks like from the city's famous castle.

  • One of the highest vantage points in Eger. In the holiday 2019 is made available to visitors. I do not recommend the sick on Claustrophobias and small children. The minaret is a souvenir after the Turkish invasion. It is an excellent viewpoint but you have to, unfortunately, after paying a small fee to face the OK yhy 100 stairs without a peek in the stairwell. Recommend

  • Nice view from the top. Price for non-emergency 400 HUF/person and 15 minutes to be above. However, anyone who has not yet been fand may be afraid of confinability, I think you should know that it's getting tighter. But I think it pays to go up!
