Large and most significant square in Pecs had gone through mayor reconstruction recently and it's now off limits to traffic - it again becomes a square in its original yet modernized meaning, the stage to display city's wealth and to bring people together, latter especially during major events. Here are Pecs most important buildings, speaking rich language of the architecture and history. Here are its icons - the buildings most often seen on postcards; to the North gentle curves of the Mecsek hill enclosed in the image of the place.
Mosque of Pasha Gazi Kassim - now church, Varoshaza with neo-Baroque tower, impressive Megyehaza, plague column and interesting fountains, Hunyadi sculpture - the heroic Hungarian warrior, Irgalmasok - st Sebastian - church, Zsolnay fountain... just to name a few most notable features; learn their names, observe the forms, activity related to present, history and places.
Visit by day or night... with each specific light of a moment, depending on season. Find its topography - a square lies on a slopes, slightly falling to its southern edge.
Sit down by their uniquely designed benches, observe the engaved patterns in the stone. Find the shelter among the vegetation, feed the birds... the square is place to do things. From it, it takes a step and you're lots in many interesting, charming streets which are pure pleasure to explore.
