Archbishop's Garden

Archbishop's Garden is the biggest park of Eger, called as "the lungs of the town" by locals. On its place there used to be a natural forest fenced off and used for hunting by the bishops. The gates were opened for the public in 1919 - two of them, real wrought iron masterpieces of Henrik Fazola, are still standing on the northern and western sides of the park. The garden is bordered by Eger stream on the east and if you are lucky you can see wild duck families swimming in it.
