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.

  • I'm not a fan of Oriental architecture, and I didn't like Torok Cory very much. But since this is one of the three minarets that survived in Hungary, we decided to visit it. I didn't like the minaret. But most of them can't climb, unlike Iger. This is a big plus.

  • It's a symbol from the Ottoman empire. It was also kept as a symbol of victory by Hungary. After the city was taken back, they erected a cross on top of the minaret. It means something to everyone, the Hungarians have hired many ottoman artifacts, and they shouldn't destroy it. From societies that respect history.
