Pécs, Southern Hungary
Mysterious Roman burial vaults, Turkish mosques, slender minaret, fine Zsolnay ceramics, grandiose Csontváry paintings, decorative Vasarely patterns, almond trees blossoming in early spring, restaurants and cafés with pleasant atmospheres - this is all Pécs, the 2000-year-old city with Mediterranean climate and mood lying at the southern foot of the Mecsek Range.
The road leading to the summit of the hills is bordered by the steep streets and interesting houses of old Pécs, Tettye. There is a beautiful panorama from the 525 m. Misina Peak, and wine sampling from the famous wines of the region can be an excellent evening program for those on an excursion following the marked tourist routes in the Mecsek Park Forest.
On Market Square there is an antique fair on the first Friday of every month, a crafts fair and car auction every Saturday and Sunday, and a livestock fair on Sunday.
