Holiday rentals in Pecs, city of culture
This cultural centre in the south of Hungary is one of Eastern Europe's must-see cities. With its Mediterranean climate and atmosphere, and brightly coloured, ornate buildings straight out of a fairytale, you'll fall in love with Pecs at first sight. Choosing a Pecs holiday rental is the best way to immerse oneself in the city, exploring streets you may never have discovered, and buying local food at the market to prepare at home.
If you love art and architecture, a holiday home in Pecs will suit you perfectly. There are so many beautiful landmarks to take in: the City Hall, the County Hall, Pecs Cathedral, the National Theatre, the synagogue, and the entire Zsolnay Cultural Quarter. The Zsolnay family were ceramicists and pioneers in the nineteenth century, and brought international recognition to Pecs. Now, you can visit a neighbourhood of fantastical buildings, museums, exhibition spaces; Armin Klein Street and Pyrogranite Square are among the most beautiful spots. With a holiday rental in Pecs you'll feel truly spoilt for choice when it comes to museums and cultural attractions, too. The Zsolnay Museum is a must-see, and other recommendations are the Archaeological Museum, Ferenc Martyn Museum, and the Granatalma Museum Pharmacy.
The City of Grapes and Wine
Pecs holiday rentals are good for oenophiles – the area has long been known for its good wine, and indeed one of the earliest champagnes was produced in the city; take a tour around the old Champagne factory, where you can see the old labyrinth of cellars that spans five storeys, learn about production, and have a tasting. Pecs still produces wines, and is best known for their whites, such as Italian Riesling, Chardonnay, and Cirfandli. The city hosts many wine related events, including tastings, and a wine and champagne festival.
