Pécs is situated in the south-western area of Hungary, near to the Croatian border. Its origins reach back to the Roman Empire, no wonder why people call it the ‘most Italian city in Hungary’. Another nation has formed Pécs to their looks, the Turkish. Back in the day when the Turkish invaded Hungary this town was spared the most, the Turkish even built their own buildings in it such as the many djamis and minarets all over the city. Another famously Turkish thing of the city are the Turkish spas with their domes which used the city’s thermal water supplies. After the Turkish invasion, Christianity started to spread in the region; this is why we see a lot of Old Christian churches like the Basilica of Pécs. For the lovers of museum there are a lots of options to choose from like the Csontváry Museum, or the Vasarely Museum, and a whole town district dedicated to art: the Zsolnay Cultural District. Pécs is also home of the Medieval University of Pécs, which is a still student-holding university, with the old buildings renovated. Pécs also has its own zoo and adventure park. Travelling through these sights you can save valuable time if you rent a car, which time can be useful if you really wish to see Pécs to its fullest.
