Visit to Pecs for Zslonay luster

Pecs is a beautiful, award winning and sophisticated city (please disregard the MacDonald’s on the corner of that building in the lovely square).

Pecs was the home of the Zsolnay factory, famous for its lusterware production, including the colorful roof tiles gracing many buildings in Hungary. The factory has been closed for some time, but the town has a museum of the production. I have included some examples.

The tour included some interesting architecture on the way and a stop for a wine tasting on the way home in Hungary’s famous wine region.
