Gyor (German: Raab) is the most important city of northwest Hungary, located on at the confluence of three rivers: the Danube, Raba and Rabca. In the mid-19th century, Győr's role in trade grew as steamboat traffic on the River Danube began. The town lost its importance in trade when the railway line between Budapest and Kanizsa superseded river traffic after 1861. The town leaders compensated for this loss with industrialisation.
