Welcome to Pécs, the 2010 European Capital of Culture!
Pécs is the fifth largest city of Hungary, and is the seat of Baranya County. The city located in the feet of the Mecsek mountains. During the Roman Empire, the settlement was mentioned as Sophiane. Pécs is the home of the first university in Hungary, and also you can find here the early Christian Necropolis, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 2000.
Pécs is called the „borderless city", a reference to a multicultural heritage that includes significant German, Croatian and Romanny communities. The idea of a borderless city fits well with the spirit of the conference.
