Jakovali Hasan Pasha Mosque was built in the second half of the 16th century. Today it is the only mosque in Hungary that has been preserved in its entirety with a minaret and is still used for prayers. Otherwise pictures that someone placed next to the name of the mosque is not adequate because it represents the Gazi Kasim Pasha... More

The djami stands in the middle of the main square of Pécs. It is a very well designed, attractive building, and lends the square as well as the city a unique, multicultural and historical character. It is in good condition, and if you travel to Pécs it is certainly worth a look.

The Jakawali Hassan Mosque is the only Turkish religious building in Hungary, which has survived almost intact. It has got a minaret also. It is a functionning religous building.

When you arrive in Pec by bus it's just a short walk to the Mosque, the restaurants, and museums all around it. There are several hotels within walking distance of the Mosque also. There is a great amount of history here, as well as being a fantastic backdrop for photos (outside).

A small mosque with a short minaret hidden on the outskirts of the Old Town functioning as a museum most of the time, but on Fridays you can also meet the Muslim community of the city there. Besides it has all what a real mosque has to have, it has a small exhibition room dedicated to the 5 pillars of... More

Free access with the Visit Pécs card. The mosque is not very spectacular but it survived from the Ottoman occupation of Pécs and preserves its minaret.

You pay to enter and it was worth to see how prayers were conducted in a mosque - 5 pillars of Islamic teaching and the prayer place. No photo taking inside - for whatever reason beyond my understanding.
