Coordinated by the Institute of Advanced Studies, the members of the Pannon Cities Alliance set out shared objectives along the KRAFT concept to achieve this success in the near future. Dynamic cooperation opportunities and hitherto untapped potentials can be exploited within this scheme and this portal will visit a great number of local values to fulfil two tasks: to offer a new perspective for tourists on the one hand, and to strengthen local identity on the other hand.
Keszthely- the seat of Lake Balaton
Keszthely is the centre of the West Balaton region and the capital of Lake Balaton. The area has been inhabited since prehistoric times; in the time of the Romans, it was once regarded as one of Pannonia’s most significant centres.
Kőszeg – School-town at the Frontier
Kőszeg is nature. The townscape is defined by the low, rolling hills of the vicinity, its subalpine climate has a healing power, its fauna and flora boast a rich diversity so to see and conquer this town is good for both body and soul.
Nagykanizsa – Great dreams and great opportunities in a great city
Come and see the greenest town in Hungary, the southwest gate to the country, the heart of the Mura region as well as a modern, dynamically developing urban centre.
Tata – the town of waters
Tata is situated on the eastern periphery of the Kisalföld region, in close vicinity of the Gerecse mountain range. The area was cultivated by the Benedictine order as early as the Middle Ages; later it became the property of the monarch.
Veszprém – The city of Queens
The town, built atop the hills located along the Séd Brook, is flanked by the mountains of the Bakony in the north and Lake Balaton in the south. Veszprém is famous for its narrow streets, atmospheric little squares, leafy parks, and its mediaeval ruins – features that contribute to the town’s overall romantic ambience.
