Favorite thing: There is striking difference between old and new in Pecs, between uniformed and individual which best manifests itself when taking a walk through Zsolnay Cultural Centre. This place becomes one of the most attractive, modern open spaces with plenty of activities, and yet its historic buildings of a former ceramic manufacture suggest a shelter of creativity.
It was so different not even a decade ago when those buildings were in sorry state!
One of new features here expose the connectedness of past with future very good: the new pedestrian iron bridge, webbed as a cluster of membranes, which allows views from and through bridge, while traffic is driving under your feet. Two old factory buildings are connected with it. One new built promenade whom starts by Library now brings people to the Zsolnays factories, and yet, before the main road divided them. Now it's all transparent, velocious, borderless. All new and past in the neighbourhood becomes one entity, as heterogenous as it can be, but all related to eachother by optimism and inventiveness.
Fondest memory: Go to see new cultural projects in Pecs ouside of centre medieval boundary.
