Zsolnay Culture Quarter, Pécs, Hungary

We returned yet again to Pécs, specifically to see the mostly completed Zsolnay Kulturális Negyed (Zsolnay Culture Quarter), which was supposed to have been finished in the middle of last year. They have done a beautiful job on the complex, situated on the grounds of the Zsolnay Porcelain Manufactory (there are several sub-galleries in this gallery on Zsolnay porcelain, museum and factory grounds). It's hard to tell from some of these images, but the moment we got out of the car it started snowing heavily, then stopped, then started again, over and over for quite a while, and suddenly the sun came out.

For exquisite old Zsolnay porcelain, please visit http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/zsolnaymuseum and for an absolutely spectacular exhibit of Art Nouveau (and older) Zsolnay, see http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/gyugyi . Earlier images of the Zsolnay manufactory are here http://www.pbase.com/helenpb/zsolnay_factory . I hope you enjoy this lovely porcelain as much as I do!
