Kaposvar

3.5
Kaposvár is a city in the southwestern part of Hungary, south from the Lake Balaton. It is one of the leading cities of Transdanubia and it is the capital of Somogy County. Kaposvár is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kaposvár.EtymologyThe name of the city derives from the words "kapu" and "vár", meaning gate and castle in Hungarian. So Kaposvár is the "Castle of gates". Experts believe that it is possible that the city used to have many gates.Different variants of the name include Kapoşvar, Rupertgrad and Kapošvar.Coat of armsThe shield of Kaposvár consists of the green hills which means the Somogy Hills and the three-towered castle with a huge metal gate. The Castle of Kapos could look like it.GeographyThe city is enclosed by the gentle knolls of the subregion called Outer Somogy on the north and by the bluff downhill forests of the other subregion Zselic on the south. Trade arrived by river, and the city also became a center of crossroads reaching into the region. Flood controls have been instituted on the river.Nowadays Kaposvár is a developing junction for rail- and public roads; it is closely connected to all the settlements of the agglomeration, as well as to those over the knoll. The European railway line from Budapest towards the Mediterranean leads through Kaposvár and other cities of the county.The city lies 186km south‐west of Budapest, on both sides of the River Kapos on the Somogy Hills. The city is located about 50km from the Lake Balaton (on the road 67), 62km from Pécs (on the road 66), 40km from Szigetvár (on the road 67), 92km from Szekszárd (on the road 65) and 72km from Nagykanizsa (on the road 61).
