Academics

Pecs is a beautiful sister city of Tucson. It is the fifth largest city in Hungary, with a population of about 200,000. Lying in the south of the country at the foot of the Mecsek mountains, it has a mild, almost Mediterranean, climate.

The city's history dates back over 2,000 years, and the name of the old Roman town, Sopiane, is still found in the names of institutions and products. Pecs is a modern town, rich in historical monuments, as well as cultural and entertainment opportunities. The town is famous for its museums, galleries, festivals and cultural events it hosts. Due to the fact that it is a university town, it also has a very vibrant nightlife. The downtown of Pecs, with its narrow winding streets, is a unique mixture of the relics of Early Christianity, the Ottoman reign (the mosques, the Turkish bath and Pasha Idris's tomb) and the achievements of modern architecture and art.

The city has an unusual Italian atmosphere.  Just glance over the main square and the mosque's white-hot stones on a summer day or walk in Jókai Square in an afternoon, early evening or along the promenade.  Amidst the terraces of the cafés and restaurants of Király Street, have a rest by the fountains at the theatre.  You can easily feel as if you are in Italy. When approaching the city from the south, it looks like traveling among the hills of Tuscany or Lazio.

Location

Hungary is a small and beautiful country in the heart of Europe, surrounded by seven neighbors: Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Ukraine and Slovakia. It is a truly unique place: The area of the country is barely 100,000 km2; the language is spoken nowhere else; Hungarian folk songs bear no resemblance to those of other nations. Yet, the Hungarian people have been living in the centre of Europe for over 1,100 years.

The country boasts a heritage that attracts people from far and wide. Citing the city's unparalleled panorama, UNESCO declared Budapest, Hungary's capital, the Pearl of the Danube, a World Heritage site. After Iceland, Hungary has the world's largest reserve of surface thermal water with hundreds of hot springs. Lake Balaton, Central Europe's largest lake, is a favorite place for yachting and lovers of the beach. The Adriatic sea off the coast of Croatia is also easily accessible by train. The cuisine and hospitality of Hungarians is world famous flavors of Hungarian dishes are based on centuries old traditions in spices and preparation methods.  Restaurant prices, especially outside the capital, are very reasonable.
