Pécs and South Pannonia - Closer Than You Think

Pécs and South Pannonia - Closer Than You Think

Published by VisitHungary
To us, Hungarians, being in South Pannonia is always a unique experience. This is where spring
arrives first and where the autumn sunshine warms our bodies and souls the longest, in the entire
country. Even in November, we can be sitting on city café terraces in short sleeves; and fig ripens in
our gardens three times a year. Big city tourists find the tiniest villages in our region; while visitors
from the Great Plain appreciate our wild romantic mountains and caves. One of the cleanest rivers
in Europe, the Drava marks the country’s boarder here and we are proud of the nature protected
national park area of the river and the Gemenc forest, the largest near-to-natural state forest on
its floodplain.

To us, Hungarians, being in South Pannonia is always a unique experience. This is where spring
arrives rst and where the autumn sunshine warms our bodies and souls the longest, in the entirecountry. Even in November, we can be sitting on city café terraces in short sleeves; and g ripens inour gardens three times a year. Big city tourists nd the tiniest villages in our region; while visitorsfrom the Great Plain appreciate our wild romantic mountains and caves. One of the cleanest riversin Europe, the Drava marks the country’s boarder here and we are proud of the nature protectednational park area of the river and the Gemenc forest, the largest near-to-natural state forest onits oodplain.Hospitality is not a necessary business practice here but a tradition of many centuries. This is theregion where the most and largest nationalities of Hungary live together, and our Mecsek mountainis the cradle of Hungarian village tourism.If we were to close the tastes and aromas of South Pannonia into a box, we denitely would placeSzekszárd and Villány wines in it rst. This region had been blessed with great potential. Each of the wines growing here carries the taste of sunshine, yet we would recommend you to taste theregion’s typical wines rst: Kadarka and Bull’s Blood (bikavér) from Szekszárd, Blue Portuguese(kékoportó) from Villány and Cirfandli from Pécs! Next to them, we would put almond – bloominghere rst in the country every year -, fruits and berries from the forests of the Mecsek and chestnutinto the box. These would be followed by the sh of the Danube and the Drava; the game of theGemenc and the Zselic; and the melon of Ormánság that taste so sweet and fruity like nothing else. And let us not forget the honey you can nd in so many tiny villages in South Pannonia and thegoat cheese, different in form and taste in every farmer’s house.The vast majority of the region’s healing and thermal baths has been renovated completely in thepast few years. Besides wellness, our region is the rst to offer services in selfness, a trend aimedat creating a harmony of spirit, body and soul. Many guests are searching for the traditionalways of keeping balance: to enjoy the magic of nature riding the bicycle or riding the horse. It isno accident that Pécs and its vicinity will be the home to the Orienteering World Championship in2011; that the world’s manifold strongest ‘Iron Man’ is of Bonyhád origin; and that the very bestsportsmen and sportswomen of numerous water sports come from here.We live in healthy, natural, picturesque surroundings with a sub-Mediterranean climate where timeelapses slower and where we can delight in the taste of fantastic wines. Be a part of this feeling, liveand enjoy life on the sunny side, in South Pannonia!Zsuzsanna HegyiRegional marketing director
