Sopron, Hungary

Sopron, in the West-Transdanubian Region, at the foot of the Sopron Mountain Range, lies close to the Austrian border. Sopron is also known as the “Loyal City”, because in the referendum held in 1921 as part of the Trianon Peace Settlement, its citizens voted for the city to remain a part of Hungary. In terms of its historic buildings, Sopron is the second richest city in Hungary; together with its historic significance and its proximity to Lake Neusiedler in Austria, these make it one of the favourite tourist destinations.
