Sopron (population more than 50.000) is a delightful ancient
walled town surrounded by pleasant modern additions, 6 kilometers
from the Austrian border.
The beauty of the setting may be seen from afar, from the flat-roofed
observation tower on Károly Heights. The air is cool and clear,
and the view down onto the treetops and beyond to the town and
Lake Fertô is thoroughly refreshing aside.
