Tour description

Pécs is the fifth largest city of Hungary, located on the slopes of the Mecsek mountains in the south-west of the country. Pécs guards a 2000 years of history started with the Romans at the beginning of the 2nd century. Its episcopate was founded in 1009 by Stephen I, and the first university of Hungary was founded here, in 1367 by King Louis the Great. Moreover, Pécs is the richest town in Hungary in terms of Turkish architecture also, with the ruins of Memi Pasa's Baths and the mausoleum of the miracle worker Idris Baba, just two notable remains to mention.
During the tour we visit the Early Christian Necropolis (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Cathedral of Pécs, Gazi Kasim's Mosque on the main square, the world famous Zsolnay and Csontváry Museums, and take a walk in the beautiful inner city.

We continue at the nearby Pécsvárad, where the the most significant Hungarian heritage from the middle ages - the Benedictine monastery commissioned by King St. Stephen -, and the castle from the 14th century - was built. The monastery's remains boast a chapel with original frescoes from the 10th century, which are unique romanesque monuments all over Europe.
