Dungeons of Castle Eger

Janne and I visited Castle Eger in Hungary (Egri Vár in Hungarian). I loved the sign, "no ballet dancing on the top of the walls"?

But the castle was also great. The castle has seen many changes during its thousand year old history. There used by be a large gothic palace or church, but today only ruins remain; the military defence designed evolved over the years as cannons developed. The castle is best known for defeating the Turkish invasion in 1552.

There are interesting dungeons, tunnels, and prisons to explore at the site.
