"Pècs, holidays in a student town..." Pecs by Djinn76

Pecs Travel Guide: 358 reviews and 922 photos

Last step of our trip in Hungary, Pécs or indeed Sopianae as it was called during the roman period has about a 2000 years history...

The old town is a real jewel, a concentration of wonderful buildings inside the medieval walls. The atmosphere is really decontracted and you can't do without wandering into the walking street...

The students have been part of the town for several centuries but I was there right in the middle of summer, maybe not the best time to enjoy this kind of atmosphere...

I like very much this picture, they are tens of lockers ... since quite often two names are written on each and this is close to the basilica; I could guess what they represent. However if someone have more details, I'd be interested to know...

    nice group of pages. the mixture of eastern and western traditions and things dating back so far must have made it very attractive.
