Sopron Hungary

SOPRON

The last country on the European Road Trip 2010 was Hungary.
Just over the Austrian border, you have the city of Sopron.
It’s a historical town with medieval architecture and several buildings listed on the Unesco heritage list.
As a border town so close to Austria it’s a popular day trip destination for Austrians, from Vienna and Graz it’s easy to do a day trip to the historical town of Sopron.
On this road trip we parked the car just outside the centre on free parking spot and walked towards the centre to check it out. It was the last stop on the road trip that I took with two friends to many countries in Europe. We returned in the afternoon towards Austria and decided to drive back to Belgium about 1000 km.
We arrived late at night in Belgium only to cross the border again the very next day to another country, which was Luxembourg. My post about Luxembourg is here
Other countries on this tour were Swiss (driving through), Germany (driving through), visiting Austria,Liechtenstein,Slovenia and Luxembourg.
