“Communist style cement building”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Travel there by taxi the price not too bad for taxi fare. Paid to go in.
The lifts took us up and lovely amazing view of Southern Hungary fields and land Around. Can see the Pecs town below.
Got WC and Café up there. Then we took the last bus back down into town. Bus number 35 that take you up and down. No other bus. Made in Communist era but interesting to look at the structure.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Actually, this TV Tower was the best experience for me in Pecs. The panorama is beautiful. You can see the entire city and also the mountains of nearby Northern Croatia if the weather is clear. You can drink some coffee or beer at the restaurant. The road to the tower is also very nice, with some outlook points.

“Wonderful communist era relic - don't visit on a windy day”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Wonderful road up the hill. Incredible views from the tower. Unfortunately we visited on a windy and rainy day so only stayed outside for a few mins. Highly recommended visit.

“The best TV Tower in Hungary with one of the most scenic view”
Reviewed 1 August 2013 via mobile

It was a symbol of the 70ies. Opened in 1973 and was and still is the non-official symbol of Pécs. Easy to reach by car, 10 minutes from the city center. Free parking next to the tower. The entry ticket price is correct (a bit more then 3 euros / adult) You have only one option to go up, with the old elevator and with its responsible "driver". You cannot use the elevator alone.... Up to the tower you have one of the most scenic and beautiful panorama of Hungary. To the north you see the Mecsek hills, "Tubes", "Zengő" as the top of the hills. In the south you see the town, the Villany-hills are behind, and also Croatia a bit far away. Take a telescope with you to catch the buildings of the inner town. Really wonderful!!!There is a restaurant at the top, with nice choice of ice-creams. For 3 euros you have a nice cup, "Pinocchio cup" for children for 4 euros. Try the famous Hungarian dessert the " gesztenyepüré" which is a very nice kind of marron dessert. For 650 HUF/2013 price cca.2.5 euros. Worth it. Segafredo caffe.

“Amazing view and try the "rangers" soup in the cafe”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

It is one of those post communist era infrastructures, solid, big but no deluxe. Even so the view is amazing. I had a car so access was not a problem, the drive from town takes you through a forrest with paths and picnic spots. Several degrees cooler than the town. Also unusually for tourist places like this. The cafe in the tower is good. I had a traditional Hungarian soup: rangers soup, sort of meaty with mushroom and cream. I would recommend. Also natural lemonade. Not many tourists and its a weekend at the end of June. Only Hungarians, Pec's is certainly an area to discover. Around three hours drive south of Budapest. One difficulty is that not much English is spoken and signs tend to be only in Hungarian, so I would recommend a good navigation app for your phone.
