The Hattyú House, Pecs

The Hattyú House, Pecs

The building of the Hattyú House was completed in the 1800s and planned as the "Fehér Hattyú" or the "White Swan" Inn. The story of the place begins with the "Fehér Hattyú Vigadó" Dance Hall building, then the construction was renewed in an eclectic style, when the House received a fine new gateway. There was a period of time in 1809 when the building served as a military hospital. In October 1846 the main dance room of the house hosted Ferenc Liszt's concert. At this concert the audience enjoyed the first performance of the maestro's Hungarian Song sang by the Pécs Choral Society. Nowadays visitors of the hall may see the words "Swan Court" when entering the building and some black letters meaning "Swan" on the main facade. The large wooden door at the main entrance leads you to the beautiful garden where a statue of a sitting woman warmly greets you.
