On top of the City of Culture thing, they also had their very own UNESCO World Heritage Site (doesn't everybody; I really think you must be able to buy these things by mail order). And it was twinned with, get this, 17 different cities! As cities go, Pecs is definitely the local bike. A nice little slut, though. Lots of historic stuff and well-maintained old buildings and parks and fountains and (surprise surprise) cobblestoned streets. But that's about it.
