Pécs and the surroundings
Pécs, Hungary’s fifth largest city, lies in the southern part of the country. 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.
This small country is one of the oldest European countries, situated in the middle of the continent in Central Europe. Lot of history, culture and hospitabilty, cooncentrated in a small area.
Partcipants will be placed in the newly built Forum Hotel in Pécs downtown. See pictures of the Hotel, and the rooms.
