Opening time
From 10:00
Closing time
at 18:00

The exhibition area summarises the history of medieval and Ottoman Pécs, and presents the most important historical, cultural and religious events of the city.It is always a great experience to visit the historical sites of Pécs, especially if you are accompanied by a guide who will tell you more interesting facts and stories.

On the local history walk, you can learn about the background of the foundation of the first Hungarian university, the functioning of the institution and the history of the building. You will learn how the then Bishop of Pécs, Vilmos Koppenbachi, played a key role in the life of the university. The tomb of Bishop Vilmos and the sculptural decorations of his final resting place, the Aranyos-Mária Chapel, will also be on display. The fragments of the sculptures will help us to read together the traces of the Turkish occupation.
