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...
Pecs is about 2000 years old. Since it has always been an important religious center, not easy to set a date on this... more travel advice
Back to Széchenyi tér, the main square, the heart of the city, you can't miss this building with its amazing roof... more travel advice
