A City as Vibrant as its Zsolnay Tiles
On the far southern tip of Hungary, ringed by alpine hills, Pécs is today best known as the home of the world-famous Zsolnay factory, whose Art Nouveau tiles adorn many of Hungary’s most famous buildings. Yet visitors discover much more as they venture to this leafy, laid-back city, where relics such as the Dzsámi, a former Ottoman mosque, give a glimpse into its long history. Today Pécs is awash with pedestrianised streets lined with outdoor cafés, and a wealth of cultural appeal.
The cultural routes which pass through Pécs are the Saint Martin of Tours Route, the Roman Emperors and Danube Wine Route and the Réseau Art Nouveau Network.
