History buffs would do well to head south from Sopran to Nagycenk, the home Count István Szé-chenyi, arguably the most famous and greatest Hungarian who ever lived. He lived between the years 1791 and 1860, and lived at Széchenyi Castle, a beautiful building well worth taking a closer look at. At weekends and during public holidays there is a 3.6 kilometre long steam railway, especially popular with children, which runs from the castle to Fertovoz. Anyone renting Western Transdanubia holiday rentals should not pass up the chance to visit Gyor. This is the capital city of the region and is located situated at the point where three rivers converge: the Dan-ube, the Raba and the Rabca. All that water means that there is plenty of opportunity for kayakers and fisherman to do what they do best, while cyclists and walkers will find plenty of pleasant routes along the banks.
