- This square has many monuments and statuary in a very large and open surrounding. The county hall, which is directly on this square, is a lovely building with huge artworks on the outside of the top floor. You can really feel the use of the square many years ago as it served as the marketplace for farmers to sell their wares.Written April 15, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Pecs cathedral is stunning. We bought a combined ticket with the mosque.
The entry ticket allows you to go down into the crypt which has lovely wall decorations and also up the bell tower for a wonderful view. To really see the paintings on the ceiling and the decorative walls you need a ticket and it is well worth the money.Written September 5, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This place is renovated for the European Cultural Capital, 2010. It seems that they was paying attention for the view, because the beuildings are beautiful, full of Zsolnay porcelain. There are many small museums in this quarter. You must pqy all of them to visit. There is 't a ticket where you can visit all although it would be very very expansive. The exhibitions seperately are also expensive and unfortunately they are quite small. But if you are there, you must see the Mausoleum of Zsolnay family and the exhibition about the Zsolnay porcelain's golden age. It can be a whole day program.Written August 9, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This museum is the history of the ceramics factory in Pecs. This factory made the roof tiles for St. Mattias Church in Budapest. There are many pieces of art that are worth a look. This museum does not take long to go through.Written May 29, 2019
- Right in the middle of the old city is Kiraly Utca. It is a relatively straight street with gorgeous painted buildings on either side. Different types of architectures adorn the buildings and are certainly worth a healthy peeking!Written April 15, 2022
- It is hard to find educational places to take your kids to where they would learn something in a non-boring manner. This place really keeps them engaged because it is like a maze they can explore. It is also a great activity to do on a cold, rainy/snowy day. Those are, as well, few and far between if you are not visiting Budapest.Written November 24, 2019
- The view is beautiful up there, we sat in the restaurant as well.
The selection of food are rich, including deserts. The place was understaffed that time, I noticed only two waiters running in circles and taking orders. The waiters are very nice though, despite the pressure they have to endure.
They accept credit cards or cash.
Furthermore, you cannot vouch your entry tickets in the restaurant. Even if you specifically want to eat there, you need to pay admission fee for the Tower.Written July 20, 2020
- You can take a bus from the town to the zoo, but check the timetable beforehand for the busses doesn't go very often. Be warned also that there is no sign saying "Zoo". Once you get the the zoo is nice and reasonably priced. I think it has been renovated in the near past. In june we had very peaceful time in the zoo.Written July 10, 2019
- As you wander around the centre of Pecs you come across this mosque. Very interesting building to photograph.Written July 17, 2022
- This small little museum contains a sampling of works from the various periods of Vasarely’s artistic career and a room in which you can watch a documentary. The rooms are filled with Vasarely’s paintings, drawing, large tapestries, and 3D pieces such as the famous his chess set. You will be amazed by his zebra and chess-related artworks. I really liked Claire Vasarely’s bucolic, fancy tapestries. Were they handwoven in the Atelier Tabard Freres in Aubusson France? I really loved the tapestries I saw but expected more information on how they both ventured onto this interesting medium.
In addition to the museum I recommend visiting Vasarely’s Sign Sculpture made of porcelain tile outside Pauline Church in Pécs.Written July 4, 2020
- There are a variety of stores, both from the west, (like Tiger and Body Shop) and some found more often in Eastern Europe like CCC shoes. I had luch at the fast food place - nothing special. There ase a number of nice cafes with beautiful cakes. It is centrally located and easy to get to. There is a huge InterSpar with everything one could need and a huge grocery store. I did not see anywhere one could get reminders of Hungary.Written May 14, 2019
- We were on a tour of Pecs on Friday, 15 April 2022. It was a perfect time to visit this synagogue. The synagogue itself is quite plain but it allowed us to offer a couple of prayers for others who are suffering in this world today, especially in the Ukraine!!Written April 15, 2022
