Győr the city of meetings
Győr, this mellow and colourful town is situated half way between Vienna and Budapest, and hosts a vast array of architectural, cultural and natural treasures.
The radial road network of the settlement connects Slovakia from the north, Austria from the west, Lake Balaton from the south and Budapest from the east to the town, the heart of Kisalföld (" The Small Plains"). The Győr-Pér airport opened not long ago makes the town accessible by air as well.
Győr, Hungary's second richest town in historic buildings outside Budapest has won Europe-award for the protection of the historic buildings, in acknowledgment of the reconstruction of the Baroque centre of the town. Churches, palaces, museums, characteristic corner-balconies and narrow lanes, all reminders of a historic past, invite visitors to take a walk in the centre of the town.
Our sacral monuments in and around Győr are the memorials of 1000-year-old Hungarian Christianity. Saint István (Stephan) founded the Episcopate of Győr together with the first dioceses one thousand years ago. The Basilica and the Bishop's Castle erected on Káptalandomb (the Chapter Hill) are symbols of the Christianity of West-Hungary.
Győr is a town of festivals where friends of the arts and those who are eager for a high-quality relaxation can find attractive programmes all the year round. This lively settlement with buoyant economic and commercial development offers splendid opportunities also for the representatives of business life to meet here.
Nature embraces and weaves through Győr along the rivers. The medicinal waters, the landscape and the cultural-historical treasures of the environment: the Szigetköz water-land and the Pannonhalma Hills allure people who want to have a rest or relaxation. The Rába-Quelle Bath, the bath of meetings has been recently opened in the city of meetings. Through its services it creates additional excellent opportunities for an active holiday, for recovery or relaxation.
