Blessed with a mild climate, an illustrious past and a number of fine museums and monuments, Pécs is the jewel of Southern Transdanubia, if not all provincial Hungary. For these reasons and more, many travellers put it second to Budapest on their 'must-see' list.

Lying equidistant from the Danube and Dráva Rivers on a plain sheltered from northern winds by the Mecsek Hills, Pécs enjoys an extended summer and is an ideal place for viticulture and fruit and nut growing, especially almonds. But for the visitor, the capital of Baranya County, Pécs, is more than anything else a 'town of art', beating Szentendre on the Danube Bend hands down. [source: lonelyplanet]
