Dizzying heights, jaw-dropping panorama, well-known sights from a whole new perspective – this is Pécs from a different point of view. There are several locations in the capital of the Mecsek that are sort of a “one-stop-shop”: the pale blue dome of the mosque, the steady towers of the cathedral and the colourful Zsolnay Cultural Quarter. Just do not leave the binoculars at home.
The perfect site to start this all is one of the symbols of Pécs, the TV tower on top of Hill Misina, which is the tallest building in Hungary with a height of 197 metres. Take a seat in the glass-walled restaurant at 75 metres, or head straight for the lookout tower via the express elevator: on a clear day, you might even spot the peaks of the Croatian Papuk Mountains. For those of you who don’t wish to experience such dizzying heights, the Kis-Tubes lookout tower a little over 1 kilometre from the TV tower is the perfect alternative destination. With its limited capabilities, it is not as spectacular, however, the panorama of Pécs from the top is still amazing. If you still have some time during the afternoon, make sure to travel onwards towards the János lookout tower on top of Hill Tubes, surrounded by the peaceful hills and slopes of Mecsek.
