The weather situation did not really improve so we decided to drive towards home again. Looking at the forecast Pécs was interesting and only a short detour from where we have to go.

Sopianæ was the earliest Roman name for Pécs. It was founded by Romans at the beginning of the 2nd century. Now it is the 5th largest city in Hungary. In 1367 the first university in Hungary was founded here by Louis I the Great. Pécs has a rich heritage from a 150-year-long Ottoman occupation and was always a multicultural city.
