szombathely is also one of the few examples in hungary where the railway station looks very much like western europeans do, and almost meets its standards (except for the lifts of course, which are somehow still not "invented" in hungary).

but cities in the countryside in hungary generaly look quite OK. but in sopron, or my favorite example regarding this, the city of siófok -where the city itself also look very very neat and clean- you can forget about the railway stations in both cities. they just look like hell.

In the communist era Hungary was considered as a much richer country than Poland. I remember my jealousy when crossing CSRS-Hungarian border in eighties. They had watermelons, peaches and oranges in their shops and it was not Christmas.

As you can see there is ATM built in the booth. Strangely, you can't use Visa there.

It's not that bad, in my opinion. Yes, there are some really old stretches of A8, however if considering their age, calling them 'schlechte' or 'scheisse' would not be right. They are just old.

It's chiefly the alignment and design standards that are outdated, not the road pavement.

Yes, but, in either case, the crash barriers are...lacking in shininess.
