Bakonya village is located in the Pécs micro-region, 15 km from Pécs, on the western side
of the Mecsek. It is one of the oldest villages in Baranya County. During the 55th Mecsek

Places of interest:
Local History Museum (Helytörténeti Múzeum), Fő u. 2.:
The building was constructed by László Cecilia, and was later reorganized to be a historical
collection. The equipment is made up of the László family’s legacies, the parsonage’s
furnishings and the collected items of the locals. In the building contemporary farming and
mining related gears can be found.
In the smaller building settling down in the provincial house's yard we can find Vörös Vince’s
memorial room (ex- vice president of the parliament, the honourary president of the FKGP).
The room is decorated by his own furnitures, his typewriter, his manuscripts and
photographs relating to his life.
Since Bakonya is a former mining village, the museum's park contains a miner’s memorial
and a mine cart. The courtyard of the museum is a well-kept, landscaped public area with a
statue of St. István in the middle. In 2020 the inscription Bakonya was placed on the
entrance side of the plot.
