Founded in 1367, The University of Pécs is Hungary's oldest university. It has had a chequered history, but the modern university, was established in 1921. The City of 

Pécs, Hungary's fifth largest city, lies in the southern part of the country. It is a gateway to Croatia, the Balkans and to Northern Italy. Mysterious Roman crypts, domed Turkish mosques and a slender minaret, fine Zsolnay porcelain, grand Csontváry paintings, decorative Vasarely patterns, almond trees in full blossom in early spring, pleasant restaurants and cafés - all of this is Pécs, a 2000-year-old city at the foot of the Mecsek hills with a Mediterranean-like climate and atmosphere. The vicinity of the Adriatic, the winding streets of the historic centre, the teeming life of the early summer evenings all evoke the feeling of a Mediterranean region. At the same time, Pécs is a regional cultural and university centre. Tradition, cultural heritage and artistic innovation are driving forces for creating a new image for the city.
The Republic of Hungary is a small country lying in the centre of Europe in the Carpathian Basin. It shares borders with seven neighbours: Austria, Slovakia, the Ukraine, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Croatia and Sloveniacant role.
