Unique with its 4 towers, it is nice to come by day and by night and go around it. Very nice photos to make. The inside is almost as nice as the Mathyas church in Budapest: very nice murals and ceilings.

Impressive building with monumental doors. There is no tourist entry during the ceremony, way to go!

The size and the beauty of this cathedral will impress you for sure! The environment is also amazing. Better see at spring or summertime when trees are green :)

Pecs cathedral is the landmark of the city, and in these days the renovation is finished. You can climb he south-eastern tower, 266 steps up & down. On a sunny day you can sit down onto the south faced steps of the cathedtral, and make a short stop while sightseeing.

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.
