Although Gyor (pronounced 'jyeur') is one of Hungary's biggest industrial centres, there is plenty in this lively city in the way of tourism. After the Hungarian capital of Budapest, and also the city of Sopron, Gyor contains the highest quantity of historical buildings and significant monuments in the whole of Hungary.

Any travellers passing through the Transdanubia area of Hungary should not miss spending time in Gyor, which is centred around the confluence of the Rába and Monsoni-Danube rivers. Next to the train station, take a walk up the traffic-free street of Baross Gábor Utca and you will almost feel like you are stepping back in history, since there are so many sights from the 17th century and the 18th century situated here. Close by and on the northern side of the county hall, the Gyor tourist information kiosk of Tourinform is situated on the Arpad Utca.
