This cathedral is a landmark in Pecs, similar to the TV tower, that you can see from almost any point in Old Town. The blue-green roof against the stone is striking from the outside and the inside does not disappoint. There is an abundance of Romanesque sculpture and beautifully crafted 19th century artwork. Outside, you can walk through the manicured... More

Beautiful church with rich history. Modern church is in the style of the original which was destroyed in earlier times.

If when you go to Rome you find yourself visiting lots of churches then this is a must see if you happen to be visiting Pécs. Our visit was too short to spend enough time studying everything in as much detail as I would like and I sincerely hope to have another opportunity one day to return and explore further.... More

An absolute must to visit, very well kept, gives the impression of how romanic cathedrals could have looked 1000 years ago.

The cathedral was dedicated to the apostles Peter and Paul, and it is very specific because it has four towers, bell towers. The interior is very nicely decorated. Beside it lies at the Bishop's Palace. Otherwise, the cathedral itself is located on a hill, and beneath it are the catacombs, which can also be custom.

We visit the cathedral regularly on Sundays. I still haven't discovered every single bit of it. My eyes often wander and start a journey through the decorations, at times I lose track of the service:). Should you stand on any spot of the cathedral, you can experience an immense timespan. Early Christian remains under the cathedral, undercroft from the 11th... More

Looks very good from outside, but much better from inside.. If you come during service, it will be very nice to hear choir and watch it. I liked statue of Franc List in front - standing on balcony and observing.

Beaufitul place. Very interesting little pictures and statues to see. Only the problem is that on saturday (weekend) parts of it are open only until 12:00. Definitely Pecs must see. Also the museum of Roman excavations is also very good.
