Declared an UNESCO Heritage site, the Early Christian cemetery of Sopianae is a must-see when in Pécs! An incredible amount of planning and construction took place to preserve this 1600 year old history. Great care has been taken to make the visitor's experience a worthwhile and educational one. A major plus for this attraction is that it is fabulously wheel-chair... More

Pécs is a great city which offers so many different things to see: Romans tombs like this one, cathedral, Zsolnay cultural center, mosque turned into church. All times are represented here.

The cemetery has only one tomb, so it's cool but not worthy the entrance fee... It could be cheaper or be one ticket for all the burial area

This was incredible! The condition and presentation of these tombs from the 300s A.D. were amazing and made for a fantastic attraction.

Sopinae cemetry is located right down the Cathedral. You have to look carefully to find it in a park. Outside you will see Roman ruins and stairs are leading to the underworld. If you want to make pcs you have to pay around 1 EUR.

This is the other part of the ancient cemeteries that tourists can visit. If I had to choose between this and the Cella Septichora I'd choose this. It's much smaller, so there's less walking and less sense of claustrophobia, and the interest is more concentrated. The entrance isn't easy to see from the road above. Look for the remains of...

Well worth a visit. The museum attractively show cases the elaborate and unique ancient underground burial spaces. Before you enter the underground walk, check out the layout model in a display in the lobby area. The layout underground is confusing and hard to understand without this overview. More explanation in English along the connecting passageways and at the chambers would... More
