Mohács

Mohács is located in southern Hungary which is 50 km from Pécs by car or bus. The city has a common stop on Danube River cruises and the small town does have some of its own attractions.

Sight

The town's identity is rooted in a major battle that took place here in 1526 when the Turks swept in, defeated the Hungarians, and then ruled over them for some 150 years. If you do spend the day in Mohács, the Historical Memorial Park just outside of town has a comprehensive collection of clothing, tools, and arms that show the cultural differences between the enemies. 

Busójárás

The town hosts the annual Busójárás carnival which hold in the days before the Lenten season. The day before Ash Wednesday, men wearing sheepskins and frightening masks. They parade through the town and dance around bonfires to scare off winter and bring in spring. Today the visitors can admire the tradition of this mask carnival not only in February but all year round, as new museums have opened and lots of attractions are dedicated to this major annual event.
