We made a half-day visit to the city filled with beautifully preserved baroque buildings. Eger is a city in northern Hungary. At its heart is elegant, tree-lined Kossuth Lajos Street. Buildings along this stretch include County Hall, with its fine wrought-iron gate, and Eszterházy Károly College, crowned by the Astronomical Tower. Across the Eger River, medieval Eger Castle overlooks the city. On its grounds, the István Dobó Castle Museum has a picture gallery and exhibits on the castle’s history.
