Misina - Mandulás - Mecsek Gymnastic Course

You can get to Misina Peak by taking a bus from the central station in Pécs. The hill is 535 metres high. While this might fall behind other surrounding peaks in terms of height, Misina is the closest to the city centre and easy to reach. It is accessible by either bus or car.
The winding path up to Misina Peak passes the Liberty monument, erected in 1975. The bronze monument by Makrisz Agamemnon depicts a winged Niké. The 176-metre-high TV tower stands on top of Misina Peak. An express lift can be taken up to the café with its glass walls. Sitting at the tables, you can look down over the beautiful city. The open lookout terrace is above the café.
Until the 1960s, the József Kiss lookout tower stood in place of the TV tower. The lookout tower was designed by Emil Károlyi in 1908 and was named after József Kiss, general-secretary of the Mecsek Association, writer of several books about Mecsek, and a nature lover.
From the top of the TV tower in clear weather you can see the Danube, the range of the Mecsek from north to south, the Zengő and even part of Hegyhát ridge. To the west, you can seen Jakab hegy (hill) and, on the horizon, Tubes.
Starting from Misina Peak, Mandulás can be reached either by following the green triangle or by taking the bus to the Zoo and then following the path marked with the red square to the west. Mandulás is a resting place on the southern slope of Misina, next to the picturesque Pécs Camp Site. It is a favourite tourist destination.
The Mecsek Gymnastic Course starts from the norhwestern corner of Mandulás on two forest routes (a small circle and a large circle). There are rests along the course and eight further stations in the small circle and 16 stations in the large circle for gymnastic exercises. Unfortunately the equipment on the exercise stations is very old and damaged. The small circle is 1,410 metres and the large circle is 3,150 metres long, following the red square. The circles lead back close to the starting point.
Leaving Mandulás along the road and passing the camp site, you will round a hairpin bend and arrive at the Liberation monument. From this point, you can enjoy a view of Pécs. Two further hairpin bends from the monument will bring you to Mecsek Gate, from where the Paulite church is only a few minutes away. Of course, Mandulás is also accessible by bus or car.
