Casemates[edit]

To Ikan Kekek. Casemates. I visited more than twenty years ago the Castle, but I never been on 'Casemates tour'. My guess it is an underground vaulted chamber section of the fortress. This one maybe used for gunpowder storage, armery and/or dungeon. - -Globetrotter19 (talk) 12:51, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

I found this link for more info: Casemates (Kazamata) - "Casa Armata" -- Globetrotter19 (talk) 13:39, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
I see. Thanks. Ikan Kekek (talk) 16:02, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Move to Eger (Hungary)[edit]

I don't know how common the old German name for Cheb is in English, but I had never heard of this place but had heard of the name "Eger" for Cheb. Maybe a disambiguation could help? Hobbitschuster (talk) 15:54, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

If the Czech city is also known by the name "Eger" in English, then a disambiguation page could be useful, otherwise not. ϒpsilon (talk) 17:27, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
I don't know about that. It's possible that the name was common until 1945 and has since disappeared. In German it's about 50:50 with a slight preference for Cheb and a slight correlation with age and/or political orientation... Hobbitschuster (talk) 18:58, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
If the Hungarian one is the only one of the two cities officially named Eger, its page should take the title Eger. Such an article could coexist with an Eger (disambiguation) which also links to the Czech city formerly known as Eger. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 15:57, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
The disambig exists, just with a different capitalization. Hobbitschuster (talk) 16:04, 11 September 2017 (UTC)
