The EuRu2P2 single crystal was investigated by means of magnetic, transport and thermodynamic studies at ambient and hydrostatic pressures. A small magnetocrystalline anisotropy with crystallographic  direction as an easy magnetization direction was found by experimental measurements and confirmed by first-principles calculations. We connect a previously reported change in the compressibility observed at room temperature to a rapid change of ordering temperature under applied hydrostatic pressure.
