Sopianae, predecessor of Pécs in the Roman times had its late Roman Paleochristian cemetery included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in the year 2000. In their architecture and wall-paintings the excavated finds present the Early Christian burial architecture and art of the

Northern and Western provinces of the Roman Empire. From among the Hungarian world heritage sites the Early Christian cemetery is the only one that has won itself a place on the UNESCO world heritage list in the category of culture-historical architecture.

I've visited ancient necropolis on Malta and in in Agrigento as far. This one is another jewelry in my collection. It was a worthvisiting place with a visitor centre just near the cathedral. If compared with Maltese Hypogeum Pecs necropolis don't need pre-booking and coming in advance, there are no queues and the number of visitor's limitations. But Maltese tour... More

It's really well preserved and it looks really old. It hasn't got too many things to see, but worth a visit. Everything is explained on the boards so you can actually learn something.

As with all Unesco World Heritage Sites , this Mausoleum is very well documented , easily accessible and inexpensive to visit . One major advantage that this Mausoleum has over other Roman sites is that it is in the middle of the town , totally protected from the weather elements and surrounded by other interesting sights . One drawback is... More

I went through this site with a boat tour group .We were a large group and accessibility and ease was somewhat slow. There was a abit of climbing up and down stairwells.It is a wonderful site for history lovers to view ruins and relics.

This is a stupendous museum site. The Roman Sarcophagus that have been excavated including several very unique burial chambers are fascinating. This is must see for anyone interested in the Roman Empire and its development in central Europe.

Fourth century art is rad. But in a serious note this is an amazing site. Spend a few hours and get ready to walk around and see literally centuries of history. The placards are informative and easy to understand. So glad we made time to visit.

First of all, this sight's accessibility for visitors is outstandingly well executed. All the parts of the ruins are connected via corridors, stairs and bridges, so it is both easy and fun for visitors to walk and look around. The space is filled with displays with explanations. It is possible to see even the "hidden" parts (there are glass walls... More
