    Thank you for the comments Stormbus, but I indicated under the image that it is "Shopping center entrance"

    I wrote several comments with great care, but it seems that the next one deleted the previous one. :-) Your shopping mall picture shows the Új Forrás Üzletház, not the Árkád.

    Jó kis oldal, Buddy:) Pécs remek város, csak kár, hogy riktán jutok le oda. Az éjszakai kép a Mecsekből különlegesen szép. Gratula.

    Your love of Pecs is obvious in your enthusiasm and positive comments. Pastries look so delicious! Especially enjoyed the local lock legent, Dzsami, Heroes Square, architecture of City Hall and Basilica. Great job.
