A Walk around Gyor Hungary
It was a sunny morning in early spring. I had been riding the overnight train and thought it would be a good idea to get off and out into the warm fresh air. I enjoy small cities, the ones that you can visit on foot directly from the train station. Gyor, Hungary fit the bill. Since I hadn’t seen any cities in Hungary besides Budapest
, I thought it would give me a better idea of what Hungary was like. With my Eurail global pass
, making a stop-off wouldn’t cost me any additional money.
It turned out to be a good decision. It was a Saturday and people were enjoying themselves, sitting out at street-side cafes and strolling the pedestrian-only lanes. This was nothing exciting but just out with normal Hungarians doing their normal Saturday thing. And that’s exactly why I came to Europe.

The day I visited Gyor it felt like the first really nice first day of spring.
The best way to explore a new city is by foot.
The buildings of Gyor are in great shape.

I love when the beams of sunlight illuminate an old cathedral like this.
The streets of the central part of Gyor are pedestrianized.
Although it’s off the beaten tourist track, I found Gyor to be quite agreeable.
Gyor’s Town Hall is one of its most beautiful buildings.
