When in Debrecen, use your senses instead of the just looking for the signposts: look down ahead of you to see on what kind of planks the citizens walked the streets in days of old. Look up to the sky and marvel at the colorful facades of the merchants’ houses built at the beginning of the previous century. Follow your nose to the pleasant smells from the busy Mediterranean squares and intimate cafés, or simply listen to your ears and let the charming music guide your steps.
Eger is one of Hungary’s most famous towns, characterised by superior wines, natural healing water springs, and noteworthy monuments. It was founded in 1004 C. A., around the time King Stephen made Christianity the religion of the nation. Eger is influenced by Christian and Turkish culture, Baroque and Classicist architecture. The town has a charming medieval atmosphere, where a thousand-year-old castle, thirty-eight temple towers and hills with vineyards provide a compelling backdrop.
