Eger, Hungary at Dusk (All Images on this page © Andyzbisko)
Eger is little-known outside of Hungary, making it relatively unspoilt as it hasn't been subjected to the same crass commercialisation as Budapest.
Consequently, Eger has managed to hold on to its uniqueness, giving visitors a taste of the real Hungary not a saccharine pastiche.
Its significance is reflected in the fact that it is the third most visited city in Hungary after Budapest and is second only to the capital in the amount of protected buildings within its boundaries.
