The cathedral is beautiful, I just didn't like the cars front of the building... Without them can be more nice. One of the best place for walk and rest a bit in the central.

This Cathedral is absolutely stunning. The interior is very colorful, (although much darker than seen on most of the pictures, so do not be too disappointed when you walk in) and really an outstanding piece of art. The lower floor of the cathedral can be seen as well, and it is quite interesting - not as colorful, but with some... More

I attempted to visit this cathedral twice during my visit to Pecs. The exterior is lovely, and should not be missed whilst touring the city by foot. Photo opportunities are great outside, and there is not usually a crowd in the square around it. Outside, one can also wander through the garden and sit in serenity beside the fountain, or... More

Impressive amazing architecture, built close to the old city walls. Almost every century added something to the huge building. In the church there are colourful mural paintings in the interior. There are often organ concerts on Sundays.

The cathedral is impressive both from outside and inside. Its suroundings is historical and very nice too, it is a great walk through the park. We came just in the moment of Sunday mess, so we heard the fanstastic sound of the organ too. Also inside the cathedral is beautiful. Do not miss the dominant!

I was there when they have Europa Cantat XIX concerts, it was amazing with all the video mapping on the cathedral. The cathedral itself doesn't look as big as from the outside Pretty details on the interior walls, and you can see a little around Pecs from one of the tower.

Another cathedral, but completely different interior style than all the other cathedrals on our river cruise. In the church there are no large windows and the walls are painted with large murals and colourful patterns. Very beautiful. We were also treated to a song played on the cathedral organ.

An immense and beautiful cathedral, construction started in the 11th century, due to the previous church's deteriorating condition in 1064, and like many buildings during wartime, has been destroyed and rebuilt more than once. Make sure you turn around and look up at the choir where you'll see the organ area with 6101 pipes...a definite WOW!!!

I had the good fortune to hear a magnificent choral concert in the cathedral (as I did on a previous occasion, in 2010), and such an event is most impressive supported by the beautiful interior of this vast church. The Dom Square, sloping slightly towards a happy entertainment area with food and drinks available in the evenings is an added... More

Pleasant enough cathedral in Pecs, nice architecturally but only able to see the outside as it was closed for a service while we visited late afternoon, and was closing as soon as the service was finished. Worth a visit I feel as is the rest of Pecs
