Day Trip from Budapest to Pecs

The history of Pecs stretches back over 2,000 years to its first Celtic settlements before it became part of the Roman Empire. Today, the city is well known for its art and culture and is home to the world-famous Zsolnay ceramics and the largest Turkish ruins in Hungary. The fourth-century Necropolis of Sopianae contains a number of underground tombs with incredible murals that depict Christian themes. The site is open to visitors who can also delve deeper into the history of the tombs at the Visitor Center. Among the city’s many historic landmarks is the iconic Gazi Kasim Mosque, which is an example of the extensive Turkish and Islamic architecture that flourished when the city was under occupation. Pecs is also situated in the country’s warmest wine region, so after sampling the cultural delights of the city then why not relax with a glass of one of the region’s must tries — Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Fran, and Merlot.

Some animals have small places and too much concrete, but overall the zoo was clean and nice. Some unique animals - white tiger e.g. is beautiful but missing giraffe, penguin etc.

You can take a bus from the town to the zoo, but check the timetable beforehand for the busses doesn't go very often. Be warned also that there is no sign saying "Zoo". Once you get the the zoo is nice and reasonably priced. I think it has been renovated in the near past. In june we had very peaceful time in the zoo.

Getting there is a pain but once you made it, go and enjoy. It's a cute one, not so huge like they are e.g. in Germany. Well made, clean, a wild variety of animals and reptiles and even fish. I have no clue on how well are the animal treated, they look happy, clean and well feed. It's a nice afternoon!

I have visited the old zoo several times as a kid. The new one is very modern and nicely done but for me was a bit small. Few animals but there are rarities like white peackock or white tigers that are beautiful and we especially liked the place of the lions where we could see them sleep from a 1 m distance.

If you expect to see the sign "Pecs Zoo" you will never find the site. You will have to learn some Hungarian in the process to know that "Pecs Allatkert" is what you were looking for. It is also a bit hard to find without GPS. Otherwise, the Zoo looks very nice, it is renovated. There's also an Aquarium and a Terrarium with some very interesting things on display like algae and zooplankton, or small jellyfish. There are also some facilities for children to play and a petting zoo within the grounds. It is not very big overall so you won't get too tired.
