Eger is the seat of the Archbishop and has been since the beginning of the 19th century.
The grandeur of the recently renovated Archbishop's Palace, located on Szechenyi Street reflects the central place the Church has played in the history of Eger for the past 1000 years.
After its extremely costly renovation, the Palace is now open to visitors and has been renamed the Archbishop's Palace Visitor Centre.
No bad thing since previous to its facelift the building had been falling into disrepair due to neglect, and, to my untrained eye at least, the restoration has been undertaken sympathetically.
The Palace as you would expect houses exhibitions and educational displays detailing the story of the Church in Eger. Included among these are:
Address: Eger 3300, Szechenyi Street.
