    セーチェニ広場にあります
    16世紀にモスクとして建立されたハンガリー最大なオスマン建築です。セーニチェ広場のランドマーク的存在です。典型的なモスクでこの広場を国際色豊かなものにしています。

    You should certainly see this, the change and history inside. The history is right in the center of Pecs.

    Sollte man sich unbedingt ansehen! Herrliche Innengestaltung. Ich empfehle auch den Besuch eines Gottesdienstes.

The building from the outside is very nice but paying to get inside doesn't really get you much. There are not too many things to see and not much information. The crypt may have the names of lots of people and martyrs but there is no information about how or why they became martyrs.

From the outside, situated on lovely Szechenyi square, it looks quite interesting, but the interior is very disappointing. Not a mosque (it used to be) but not quite a church either. You must enter in the crypts, which are not too interesting, and go up to the church, which is not really nice.

The symbol of Pécs. Its history is complicated. It started as a church, then the Ottomans built a mosque on top of it but when they left, the minaret was replaced by a clock tower and the building turned into a church - which looks like a mosque!
It is nice that it was not destroyed.

We (a couple) didn't have a chance to enter the Mosque but we still got an impression of the building from the outside look. Because this building is not looking at the center of Szechenyi ter but facing at its side and because it has spherical green roof in contrast to other roofs nearby, it looks a bit out of a place. However, it is just an impression of a first minute because later you get used to its unusual position and look.

The most exciting part of the Mosque is hiding behind it, where St. Bartholomew’s Bell is installed. We were lucky enough to see a little show (with music and movements) that this bell does only couple of times during day. So if by any chance you will hear a melody coming from behind the Mosque, don't miss a unique opportunity to see how 21st century bell tower works!

As you wander around the centre of Pecs you come across this mosque. Very interesting building to photograph.

Nice building on the main square. It is funny how history changes meaning of the buildings. Good to see but nothing special.

In the center of town a former mosque turned into a church after the Turks were defeated. I recommend to visit the Jakovali Hassan Mosque nearby, which is in it's original state an still in use with its original minaret.

For its size, the blending of religious cultures is quite tastefully done. The red-and-white arches bring to remembrance those in the Mezquita of Cordoba - which is on another plane of experience altogether. So for a more compact experience, the Pasha Gazi Kassim mosque delivers nicely.

Be careful of visiting hours on Sunday as the place is used for worship and you may not be able to enter during those times.
