Eger, Hungary. Major construction is currently underway in Dobo Square. Be advised that Eger received a multi million Euro grant from the EU and is using the money to totally redo Dobo Square. As of the end of March the square and several streets around it were completly demolished and you could not even walk through or around the square. The detour was 1/4 mile just to get from one side of Dobo Square to the other. One guide indicated that the project could take another year to complete. If Dobo Square factors into your travel plans, strongly advise calling or emailing the city TI prior to any visit to Eger in 2014.
Also the Senator Haz hotel in Eger is no longer giving special discounts to Rick Steves members. The price quoted when they were contacted directly in late March 2014 was the same as the price on a major on-line hotel booking site.
