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

a remain of the Ottoman occupation of Hungary, which lasted for centuries. A former mosque now a church, where they kept the architecture, obviously but also fragments of the original interior, with Arabic writings on the walls and such. In the present day's political atmosphere one can but wonder what happens when civilisations and cultures collide.

This site had a church here many hundreds of years ago, but then the Ottomans took over and knocked it down to make their Mosque. When the Magyars took it back, they converted it back to being a Catholic Church.

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!
