A soaring structure dominating the skyline of Eger, Torok Kori Minaret remains one of the city's main claims to fame. In a town packed with landmark buildings, this structure rises above the surrounding area and reminds visitors of a time when Ottoman Turks ruled this part of Europe. Constructed in the 17th century, the minaret stands 40 m (130 ft) and offers unbeatable views of the city center. One of only three remaining minarets in all of Hungary, it draws huge crowds on a daily basis. If you don't like heights and tight spaces, see what the minaret looks like from the city's famous castle.
