The town of Sopron near the Austrian border has preserved its old houses, as the Turks never set foot on it. Once a small city in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it gained the title of the most faithful city when after World War I the citizens decided to belong to Hungary.

The Solar Club Hotel is not the ideal place to stay during Christmas Holidays, because the place is dead! There is nothing to do there, the people barely speak English if any, and the appartment did not meet any of the advertisement standards of the RCI.

Sopron (pron.: "SHOW-prawn") offers visitors a delightful taste of Hungary all of a half-hour's drive from Vienna.
Sad to say, Sopron gets very few visitors from Western countries other than Austria or Germany. In three days there, we ran into but a handful of English speakers, and they were all British. No Americans, Canadians, Australians, or whatever. This is unfortunate considering how close it is to Vienna.
