European tree of the year  Hungary - Eger  The legend has it that in 1552, during the successfully defended Turkish attack against the Eger castle the Turk army was directed from under this tree. Unfortunately the legend is not true, this tree was planted together with many others at the time when Karoly Eszterhazy was the bishop of the city (18th c.)

The Valley of the Beautiful Women outside of Eger, Hungary, is known for its bull's blood wine, which locals mix with cola. There are many many cellars there, and a glass of the stuff is around 50 cents, or at least it was when I was there in 2006. Many places also sell slices of bread with butter, onion, and paprika on int-- tasty.
