Doesn't really matter if you are interested n pottery, porcelain or fine arts generally, this should be top of anyone's list for Pecs. The medieval house is worth the visit in itself, but the insights you'll gain into Hungarian culture will repay every Forint of the entrance fee. I'm not generally overexcited by porcelain, glazes etc., but I'll make an... More

As we travelled around Hungary we had seen a lot of Zsolnay work, especially roof tiles and house facias.

An excellent visit. Walk round and enjoy the industrial history. Take a coffee and have a look at the puppet theatre. Check out the varied music events and outdoor activities. Absolutely make sure that you visit the Zsolnay ceramic gallery. It is world class.

Hard to believe that such amazing things can come out of a factory. These ceramics are from another era that seems so far away. Handcrafted art will always have its high value.

While walking around Budapest you will definitely see a lot of buildings nicely decorated with colorful Zsolnay tile. These are such buildings as Matthias Church, Central Market Hall, Museum of Applied Arts, Gellert Baths and many other objects. If you want to find out more about this extraordinary technology, you just need to go to the city of Pecs, where... More
