The old town is somehow very relaxing. Inviting for a slow pace walk along the narrow streets and elegant buildings. Plenty restaurants to choose from. I don't know if is the Austrian influence or the Hungarian roots, but this little place has a special spell...More

Sopron old town is a unique gem in Hungary, as from it's architecture it does not even seem to be in Hungary, but in the neighbouring Austria. The town's old part has bilingual signs in Hungarian and German (Varkérület-Grabenrunde, Templóm Utca-Kirchengasse and Fő Tér-Hauptplatz among...More

Beautiful old city, a real fusion of Austrian and Hungarian cultures with an obvious rich and long history. A walk round the city seemed very intimate and special due to the small and winding streets.

Az óváros szépen felújított, gyönyörű épületekből áll. Nagyon sok látnivaló található itt, pár órás sétára mindenképp alkalmas. The old town is built from beatufilly restored buildings. There are a lot of sights to check here, it's definitely worth a couple hours of walk.

The old town is very walkable despite being open to traffic, and the buildings and streets are generally well-preserved. There isn't much in the way of signs, however. Be sure to visit when the many museums and sights are open.

I loved the old town of Sopron. The narrow streets were full of character with interesting buildings and cobbled floors. It was interesting to see that some of the street signs were bilingual in Hungarian and German. Visiting Sopron's old town was like stepping back...More
