Metro teams up with Springer in Hungary

Two very unlikely bedfellows, Metro International and German publisher Axel Springer, will join forces in the Hungarian press market.

Springer  publishes regional newspapers in Hungary as well as a Sunday paper, a business paper and magazines. Metro International owns free daily Metropol (290,000 copies). Together the publishers aim to reach 1.3 million daily readers in Hungary.

In January 2010 Metropol will move to the smaller half-Berliner format like Metro in the Czech Republic.
