Pécs is waiting for you!

Pécs, Hungary’s fifth largest city, lies in the southern part of the country. It is a gateway to Croatia, the Balkans and to Northern Italy. Mysterious Roman crypts, domed Turkish mosques and a slender minaret, fine Zsolnay porcelain, grand Csontváry paintings, decorative Vasarely patterns, almond trees in full blossom in early spring, pleasant restaurants and cafés – all of this is Pécs, a 2,000 year-old city at the foot of the Mecsek hills with a Mediterranean climate and atmosphere. The vicinity of the Adriatic, the winding streets of the historic centre, the teeming life of the early summer evenings all evoke the feeling of a Mediterranean region. At the same time, Pécs is a regional cultural and university centre. Traditions derived from its cultural heritage and from artistic innovation shape its present character. Pécs was a European Capital of Culture in 2010.

Built in the 19th century, Flora Rest is the perfect place to take special photos. The lookout also has
a wooden swing from which you can admire the beautiful panorama from a height of 404 meters. 
It is located in the Mecsek Mountains, to the left of the old Pécs amusement park. It can also be reached by car and bus, but a few minutes walk is definitely waiting for us if we want to get to the swing.
