The building is so simple and yet so beautiful. It has the most beautiful gate made out of iron leaves, and the entrance is imposing and beautiful. We were there on a Sunday, and the church was full. Amazing indeed!

The interior was beautiful with lovely frescoes, but not much stained glass. Unfortunately there was scaffold covering one of the towers.

If you will buy a postcard from Pecs, it is most likely that this Cathedral will be on it. We (a couple) had a chance to visit it during day and evening. Even that 7pm doesn't sound late, it was quite lonely and dark during this time near Pecs Cathedral because of its location away from the center. There were... More

A large, imposing structure that shimmers with beauty inside when you turn on the lights. Excellent for going in and getting a respite from the outside. Enjoy the peace.

A must see in Pecs. If you wait for a tour to come through they turn on the lights and you an see thoe church much better. Also, for tours they play the huge organ...while this is a digital reprocduced sound the quality is excellent....unless you are a professional organist you woul not know the difference.

This was a lovely experience. We followed Rick Steves' guide book for a walking tour of the space outside the Cathedral, the entrace gates and then continuing inside. The organ had a 6 minute concert that was computerized and played at regular intervals. It was quite nice to hear that instrument. The crypt is OK, but nothing spectacular. However the... More

We were a bit unsure of going inside the cathedral but as it was free we dropped in for look and didn't regret it. The decorations are very beautiful. There is also a very impressive organ which struck up with a rendition of Ave Maria. The information however is limited so if you are interested in the history then it... More

When you pass the bridge and the gate, Cathedral i on the right. Left from the Cathedral is Bishop's Palace. Behind it you will find... More

Of all my memories of the Cathedral - the four towers, the roof, the extraordinary gate, the gorgeous coffered ceiling, the lower level with the wooden carvings on the steps down - the one I treasure most is of the magic moment when the organ suddenly started playing, and even a group of schoolchildren were quiet.
