Sopron (Ödenburg in German) is city in western Hungary located not far from the border to Austria. Sopron has been settled since ancient times. Hungarians arrived in the area between the 9th and 11th centuries. In 1676 Sopron was destroyed by a fire and subsequently rebuilt in baroque style.
Sopron has a pleasant, oval-shaped historic core with many nice and well-preserved buildings. The firewatch tower is 61m high and contains a history museum. From its top there is a nice panoramic view of Sopron. The fire tower was built on the ruins of the Roman town wall. Nowadays it receives a large number of tourists from Austria and other European countries. Due to its low-cost dental services Sopron is a major centre for people seeking dental treatment.
