Favorite thing: A curious aspect of Pecs is that it is full of old Turkish monuments that seemed to have been just forgotten. There are Turkish baths, like those seen here, and a couple of 16th century mosques. The most famous of these has been turned into a church and I have provided a seperate tip about it. I think that many of these relics from Pecs past have largely been neglected because of resentment many Hungarians might have felt towards Turkish rule. Today they give the city a special atmosphere that makes Pecs seem all the more exotic.
