Newly-renovated Dóm Square reopened in Pécs

The historic square was reconstructed using a 600 million HUF (1.8m EUR) government grant and was inaugurated by the state secretary in charge of church and civil affairs on Saturday.

Newly-renovated Dóm Square has been reopened in Pécs, southern Hungary.

The historic site was reconstructed using a 600 million HUF (1.8m EUR) government grant and was inaugurated by the state secretary in charge of church and civil affairs on Saturday.

In his speech, Miklós Soltész said that apart from educating in faith, churches operate kindergartens and schools and thereby teach children Christian faith and patriotism. “[Churches] also provide for the elderly and strengthen our communities,” Soltész said.

The square, in the shadow of the city’s cathedral, was consecrated by Bishop György Udvardy. Pécs Mayor Zsolt Páva and the city’s MP, Péter Hoppál, also attended the event.
