It is the minaret having survived in the best condition in the country. The tower is 40 meters high and the balcony circling the terrace in on 26 meters high. Up there your breath will be taken by the view, however, it is also due - besides the fantastic panorama - to having overcome 97 high steps of the spiral staircase to get up. Those having movement disability or height fobia perhaps the minaret will give nice memories admiring it rather from outside but those who like challenges it is really worth climbing up the balcony as well!

Do & See

People say Eger is "a small jewelery box". The castle of Eger is a national memorial site and a half-day program itself, but there are other museums, churches, Turkish memorial constructions that are waiting for you.
