Dobó István Vármúzeum (Castle Museum)
For most people, Eger is the first town that comes to mind in relation to the Ottoman invasion. The Turks tried to take the Castle of Eger twice. In 1552, the Hungarians led by Captain István Dobó managed to repel the enemy excessively outnumbering the Hungarian troops, but in 1596, there was no mercy for the castle. Afterwards, the castle was ruled by the Turks until 1687.
You can enjoy a variety of experiences in its well-preserved structure. Visit the Sultan’s wax museum, take a look at the selected torture methods applied in the castle prison, and enjoy 3D time travel in the castle cinema.
