Sopron is situated next to the western borders of Hungary at the foot of the Alps. It is one of the oldest gems of the country. Sopron merges past and present in itself. It creates a bridge between Hungary and its western neighbours, opening a gate for foreign guests visiting Hungary, as it is symbolized by the coat of arms of the city.
The inhabitants of the city are known for their hospitality and loyalty to their hometown. This is also symbolized by the 'Gate of Allegiance' on the Mian Square, next to the Firewatch Tower, the symbol of the city.
The curative and refreshing air of the natural environment, the hiking routes of the neighbouring Lővérek, the view-points, the mountain springs and the proximity of Lake Fertő make Sopron one of the most beautiful and pleasant holiday resorts of Hungary.
Another attraction of Sopron are the excellent wines which characterize the Sopron Historic Wine Region.
