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.

  • This minaret reminds of the former Turkish presence, the northernmost in Europe and one of the three surviving in Hungary. Its height is 40 m, the minaret has 14 facets, which makes it incredibly durable. Instead of the Crescent, its top is adorned with a Catholic cross. On a balcony of a minaret it is possible to climb on 97 steps. The staircase is very narrow and the ascent is not for everyone. The day of Curious Sportsmen))). The pleasure is paid.

  • Beautiful appearance from Minaret! An impossibly narrow staircase, hill stairs But the appearance is worth it:) The whole city on the palm. You can refrain from up to about 15 minutes.
