Host City Győr
Győr is the sixth largest city in Hungary, with just under 130,000 inhabitants. Its excellent geographical location, advanced industry, and highly qualified workforce make it one of the most dynamically developing innovative
cities of the country. The so-called Golden Triangle of Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava, the airport in Pér, the international river harbour in Gönyű, the international railroad connections, as well as the M1 highway
have helped Győr to become one of the most important economic and industrial centres in Hungary.
Situated near the confluence of no fewer than four rivers, Győr is truly "a city of rivers." Its atmosphere is dominated by the Moson Danube meandering through the city, as well as its erstwhile eponymous Rába (Raab). One may
as well go punting or on a boat trip to discover the architectural monuments of Győr, but walking through the inner city allows one to roam amidst mansions from historic periods, characteristic corner balconies, and statues.
It is worth visiting the basilica, founded almost a millennium ago, where one can behold one of Hungary's national relics, the Herma of St Ladislaus. The tower of the Bishop's Palace opens a panoramic perspective on the
city, with the view extending as far as Pannonhalma, some 20 kilometres from Győr, where the Benedictine Arch-abbey is located – one of Hungary's 8 UNESCO World Heritage sites.
