I don't recall if I ever saw such a big sacral building. I like the architecture, and it look great from the distance. It is also possible to go inside, and it is worth of your time! :)

Very nice and big cathedral with very interesting history. We were in Sunday so we had to wait until 1 p.m. to get inside because there was a mass and the cathedral wasn't open for tourists.

Compared to the great cathedrals of France, Italy, or Spain, this one lacks the glamor and gold. But it is pretty to marvel at especially can appreciate the mix between Ottoman (geometric designs) and Catholic (saints and symbols) influences. The climb up the southeast bell tower was well worth it for the great views of the surrounding city.

Like most churches in Hungary this one has also been restored to its former beauty. It is a lovely cathedral and very large.

Great vew from the bell tower. Stunning acoustic: just in case you're lucky and visit in the time when organ is playing or some group of singers is trying their voices (when we've been there, a group from Poland performed few songs v we've been just lucky)

Surprised to find the Cathedral of this scale in the town of Pecs. Nice to walk around a little. Very peaceful.

My daughter went to the Cathedral, at my request, to pray for a seriously ill friend. She was stopped at the entrance and told she needed to pay an entrance fee. She told them, that as a practicing Catholic, she had come to light a candle and pray.She also informed them that she had never had to pay to enter... More
