    It’s Sunday night at 10:15 we have just booked into the hotel and we are hungry, all the restaurants in Gyõr seem to have closed (very un-English).

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place is called Under the Bridge. Looks familiar?
    The music there is very colorful. (And the beer is cheap) Only good people are visiting it, where good means funny. It's a club of one University and one High School, so almost everybody can speak english.

    Interesting architectural frieze on the train station. The figures look vaguely Mexican to me - or perhaps even Chinese.

  • Gyor Train Station

    Gyor's Train Station is in a style that reminds me of Art Deco designs in America. It's solid and confident. Note the manicured flower beds in the park across from the station.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the big attractions in Gyor for the locals is a full-scale Water Park on the west side of the Raba river. On the warm summer day I was in Gyor, I saw hundreds of people swimming in large pools, lying out on the grass, playing beach volleyball or gliding down the water slides. I didn't have my swmsuit with me, otherwise I would have been tempted to join the throngs.
