Eger is one of the most beautiful Baroque towns, a thousand year old Episcopal seat of Hungary. We'll see the 2nd largest Basilica of the country; visit the Castle where the heroic Hungarian defenders defeated the huge Turkish army in 1552, the library and the famous "Spekula Observatory" of the Lyceum. Along the streets and squares we can admire the splendid Baroque palaces, wrought iron gates and balconies and the northernmost minaret in the world.
After lunch we'll drive to Szilvásvárad to visit the Szalajka Valley in the Bükk National Park. We can take a light railway and admire the Szalajka Stream, the small lakes of trout and the 17m high steps of the Veil Waterfall. In the open air Forest Museum visitors can get an insight into the life of charcoal burners who formerly inhabited the region. Guests can taste the excellent trout.
