"Eger is a city in northern Hungary, known for its historical significance and beautiful architecture. The official language is Hungarian, which is considered one of the most difficult languages to learn, but English is also widely spoken, especially by younger people and in tourist areas. The cost of living in Eger is relatively low compared to other European cities, making it an attractive place for expats. The city has a continental climate, with hot summers and cold winters. Eger is famous for its wine, particularly the red wine known as Egri Bikavér, and visiting the local vineyards is a popular activity. The city is also known for its thermal baths, which are a big part of Hungarian culture and a great way to relax and socialize. Public transportation in Eger is reliable and affordable, with a network of buses serving the city and surrounding areas. Healthcare in Hungary is of a high standard, with a mix of public and private healthcare providers. Hungarian cuisine is hearty and flavorful, with dishes like goulash, stuffed peppers, and chimney cake being popular. Eger is a safe city with a low crime rate, but as with any city, it's important to be aware of your surroundings and take basic safety precautions. The city is home to a number of festivals and events throughout the year, including the Eger Wine Festival and the Eger Spring Festival. Eger has a rich history, with many historical sites and museums to explore, including the Eger Castle and the Dobo Square. The city is also home to several universities and colleges, making it a vibrant and youthful city. Renting property in Eger is generally straightforward, with a range of options available from apartments to houses. Finally, it's important to note that Hungary is part of the European Union, so EU citizens can move and work there freely, while non-EU citizens will need to obtain a visa and work permit," explained one expat living in Eger, Hungary.
