Győr is halfway between Budapest and Vienna in the northwestern corner of the Carpathian Basin. With 130,000 inhabitants, Győr is one of Hungary’s biggest cities and a major cultural center. Soon after being founded, the city was an important administrative center and episcopal seat, and received its city charter in 1271. The city’s development into the center of the Hungarian automobile and mechanical engineering industry started in the early 20th century. Győr-Moson-Sopron is today – after Budapest and Komitat Pest – the region in Hungary where the most companies with foreign involvement are located.
