Location 

The city is located in the middle of the country, on the right bank of the Danube , about 90 kilometers south of Budapest.

Important road junction. The main road 6 passes through it in a north-south direction , from which the main road 61 branches off towards Kaposvár – Nagykanizsa and the main road 52 from Kecskemét opens here ; the Beszédes József bridge connects Transdanubia with the Great Plain . Some important inferior roads also affect the area of ​​the city, such as road 6228 , which leads through Mezőfalva and Sárosd to Seregélyes , providing a connection to the Székesfehérvár area as well; to Németkérleading road 6229 , or road 5111 , which allows access to Bölcske and Madocsa .

The city was accessible by train on the Pusztaszabolcs – Dunaújváros – Paks railway line , but in 2009 the passenger transport on the section of the line between Mezőfalva and Paks was discontinued. Earlier Solttal is tied to a railway line ( Dunaföldvár-Solt-rail line ), but this has already picked up the tracks of also established bike route in 2015 in place.
