Pécsi Sörfőzde (Pécs Brewery) is one of the four most important Hungarian breweries (the others are Dreher Breweries, Borsod Brewery, Heineken Hungária), but the only one of them is wholly owned by Hungary. It produces a special beer that is known not to be filtered before bottling.  In 2010, Pécs was elected European Capital of Culture alongside Essen and Istanbul. The city`s motto is “The city without borders”. After receiving the title, the great revival of the city began.   Renovated public squares, streets, squares and neighbourhoods, new cultural centres, a concert hall, a new library and centre, and a cultural district have been designed.  With the end of the Federation, Caribbean political leaders have made more serious efforts to strengthen relations between the islands and the mainland by ensuring the continuation and strengthening of areas of cooperation existing during the Federation. In addition, in August of the same year, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago gained independence and thus the power to control their own internal and external affairs. Suriname became the 14th member State of the Caribbean Community on 4 July 1995. The city was under the command of Karl von Thüngen under martial law. The Viennese court initially wanted to destroy the city, but later they decided to keep it to compensate for the importance of Szigetvár, which was still under Ottoman rule. Slowly, the city began to prosper again, but in the 1690s, two plague epidemics claimed the lives of many people. In 1688, German settlers arrived. Only about a quarter of the city`s population was Hungarian, the rest were Germans or South Slavs.
The 1698 census of taxpayers lists 637 families for which Janja Živković Mandić concludes that 308 were of Croatian nationality (Catholic Croats, Racs, Šokci, Bunjevci, Illyrians, Slavs, Bosniaks) and the other 329 were Hungarians, Germans, Serbs or Greeks. According to the same census, István Tabo mentions 171 Hungarians, 349 Slavs and 79 Germans, while Đuro Šarošac mentions that at that time 325 Croats, 139 Hungarians, 92 Germans, 53 Vlachs and 28 Serbs lived in the city.  According to 1698 data, South Slavs made up more than half of the city`s population. As the Hungarians were only a minority of the population, Pécs did not support the revolution against Habsburg rule under the leadership of Francis II Rákóczi, and his armies plundered the city in 1704. After Buda Castle was wrested from Ottoman rule in 1686, armies conquered the rest of Pécs. The vanguard was able to enter the city and loot it. The Ottomans saw that they could not hold the city, burned it and withdrew to the castle. The army of Louis of Baden occupied the city on October 14 and destroyed the aqueduct that led to the castle. The Ottomans had no choice but to surrender, which they did on October 22 (see Siege of Pécs). An ancient city inhabited by the Celts and Romans was named episcopal see in early medieval Hungary. It has the oldest university in the country and is one of the most important cultural centers. Pécs also has a rich heritage dating back to the time of a 150-year Ottoman occupation.
Pécs was historically a multi-ethnic city where many cultures mixed and created a melting pot of different values, the rich result of 2000 years of history. More recently, the city has been recognized for its cultural heritage, including its designation as European Capital of Culture. The Caribbean Community and the Common Market (CARICOM) was established by the Treaty of Chaguaramas, signed by Barbados, Jamaica, Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago and entered into force on 1 August 1973. As a result, the other eight Caribbean Territories have joined CARICOM. The Bahamas became the 13th Member State of the Community on 4 July 1983, but did not join the common market. King Louis the Great founded a university in Pécs in 1367 on the advice of William, bishop of Pécs, who was also chancellor of the king. It was the first university in Hungary. The founding document is almost literally identical to that of the University of Vienna and states that the University has the right to teach all arts and sciences except theology. When western Hungary was a province of the Roman Empire (called Pannonia), the Romans founded several wine colonies in the early 2nd century under the collective name of Sopianae, where Pecs is located today.

A document written in Salzburg in 871 is the first documentary mention of the medieval city under the name of Quinque Basilicaa (see above).) During the 9th century, the city was inhabited by Slavic and Avar-type peoples and was part of the Principality of Balaton, a Frankish vassal state.  The city also has an informal friendship with Peterborough, England. Pécs was trained by Bishop Janus Pannonius, a great humanist poet, in one of the cultural and artistic centers of the country.  At the end of World War I, Baranya County was occupied by Serbian troops, and it was not until August 1921 that Pécs could be sure that it would remain part of Hungary. The University of Bratislava (now Bratislava, Slovakia) was moved to Pécs after Hungary lost Bratislava under the Treaty of Trianon. Pécs was also the centre of the Nordic Support Group (NSG), which consisted of units from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Poland, as part of IFOR operations and later SFOR-NATO after the Dayton Accords and after peace in the former Yugoslavia; the first units were transferred to Pécs in late 1995 and early 1996. The NSG took over the transfer of supplies, personnel and other logistical tasks between the participating countries and their armed forces stationed in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1664, the Croatian-Hungarian nobleman Nicolas Zrínyi arrived in Pécs with his army. As the city was far away in the Ottoman territories, they knew that even if they occupied it, they could not keep it for long, so they only planned to plunder it. They devastated and burned the city, but could not occupy the castle. Medieval Pécs was destroyed forever, with the exception of the wall that surrounds the historic city, a single bastion (Barbakán), the network of tunnels and catacombs under the city, parts of which are closed, other parts belong to the famous Litke champagne factory and can be visited today. [Citation needed] Several Turkish artifacts have also survived, namely three mosques, two minarets, the remains of a bath above the ancient Christian tombs near the cathedral, and several houses, one even with a stone cannonball embedded in the wall. The Georgetown Agreement also provided that the other eight territories – Antigua, British Honduras, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Montserrat, Saint Kitts/Nevis/Anguilla and Saint Vincent – which signed the Agreement – would become full members of the Community before 1 May 1974. The main station, designed by Ferenc Pfaff, was built in 1900 and placed under the protection of monuments in 2008.  The building itself was built in the style of Renaissance eclecticism and features reliefs depicting James Watt and George Stephenson, designed by Klein Ármin and manufactured by the Zsolnay factory. A local transport centre – including a bus station, a bus stop and a taxi rank area – is located on the square in front of the station. The new CARIFTA Agreement entered into force on 1 May 1968 with the participation of Antigua, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana. The original idea of allowing all territories in the region to participate in unification was realized later that year with the accession of Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts/Nevis/Anguilla, Saint Lucia and St. Vincent in July and Jamaica and Montserrat on August 1, 1968. British Honduras (Belize) joined in May 1971. The center of Sopianae was where the episcopal palace stands today.
Parts of the Roman aqueduct are still visible. When the province of Pannonia was divided into four administrative units, Sopianae was the capital of the Valeria division. The oldest name in the area was the Roman name Sopianæ. The name may come from the plural of the Celtic sop and means “swamp”. Contrary to popular belief, the name did not mean a single city, and there is no trace of a perimeter wall from the early Roman period, only from the 4th century. The University of Pécs was founded in 1367 by Louis I of Hungary. It is the oldest university in Hungary and one of the first European universities. In the recent past, it has been divided into two universities, one for medicine and orthodontics (POTE) and one larger for other studies: JPTE (Janus Pannonius Tudományegyetem). The POTE (Pécs University Medical School, now known as Medical School) has a large English program in General Medicine and Dentistry (with students from America, Asia, Africa, and European countries – including many Scandinavians) and a new German program. On 1 January 2000, these universities were merged under the name of University of Pécs (acronym: PTE – Pécsi Tudományegyetem – University of Pécs). The name Pécs appears in documents in 1235 in the word Pechyut (with the modern spelling: pécsi út, which means “road to/from Pécs”). In Turkish, beş (pronounced [beʃ]) means 5.
