  • This is a very nice example of a beautiful city centre. The square leads out to the historic ruins of pannonia from Roman times.  more »
  • The plaza is a meeting place for people from Pécs. Completely pedestrian, it is very nice, especially on days with good weather.

  • Lovely square with ice cream palors, bars etc. They often have fairs and concerts here. You can sit down in a café and check as the world go by.  more »
