Eger Castle.

View from the castle overlooking Dobo Istvan Square with the Minorite Church to the left and the Basilica in the background.

Museum inside the castle walls.

I'm not sure when this minaret was built. The mosque that it was attached to is now long gone. I DO remember that I climbed 97 very tight and winding steps to reach the top - about 200 feet up.
