Pecs


Walk in the historical city centre with lots of exciting stories giving insight into the past and present of the most important attractions.

City Hall, 1 Széchenyi Square

The dominant building of Széchenyi Square. The neo-Baroque, eclectic style City Hall received its current facade in 1907.

County Hall, 9 Széchenyi Square

Eclecticism on three floors. It stands on two plots in the lower parts of the wwestern side of Széchenyi Square, where the Czyndery and Cséby houses used to be.

Statue of the Holy Trinity

Following the example of Emperor Leopold I, a Holy Trinity statue was erected on the main square of Pécs commemorating the victims of the Plague.

14 Ferencesek Street

One of the streets of Pécs brimming with atmosphere is Ferencesek Street, which begins from Jókai Square and heads in a westerly direction, leading its pedestrian traffic to the Szigeti Gate.

Mosque of Pasha Gazi Kasim

Pécs became an eastern city as the result of the 143 year-long Turkish occupation that changed the looks of the city.

Barbican

An outstanding monument. The Barbican, a fifteenth century bastion with a circular floor plan, is unique in the country.

Baroque Pavilion

The two-storey, octagon shaped pavilion with a pointed curb-roof standing next to the western city wall was first mentioned in a historical source in 1818.
