Minarets

Coming back to my discussion about the Ottoman minaret. Wikipedia still mentions Eger to have the northernmost minaret of Europe and one of only three existing minarets in Hungary.

As a matter of fact Podolia was an Eyalet of the Ottoman Empire from 1674-1699. And if you look on the map here, you can see that Kamniets Podolski lies North of Eger (Erlau).

At least Eger can still claim to have the Northernmost Ottoman minaret in the European Union, but for how long?
