Kiosk on the promenade
The Pavilion or the Kiosk, the popular bar, was built in the 19th century on the foundations of the southeast corner bastion of the Bishop's Castle. The building was a part of the social life of the Promenade as early as the end of the 19th century. There was a rest area and a pub inside the building, while the promenade concerts of military bands were providing the right atmosphere for the relaxing citizens. The Pavilion most certainly owns its atmosphere and the fact that it survived so long to its lucky location. The Pécs Promenade has been the venue of romantic rendezvous', celebrations, festivities for centuries.
Pécs is the fifth largest city of Hungary, located on the slopes of the Mecsek mountains in the south-west of the country, close to its border with Croatia. It is the administrative and economical centre of Baranya county. Pécs is also the seat of Roman Catholic Diocese of Pécs.
The city Sopianae was founded by Romans at the beginning of the 2nd century, on an area peopled by Celts and Pannoni tribes. By the 4th century it became the capital of Valeria province and a significant early Christian center. The early Christian necropolis is from this era which became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in December 2000.
Its episcopate was founded in 1009 by Steven I, and the first university in Hungary was founded in Pécs in 1367 by Louis I the Great. (The largest university still resides in Pécs with about 34,000 students.) Pécs was formed into one of the cultural and arts center of the country by bishop Janus Pannonius, the great, Hungarian, humanist poet. Pécs has a rich heritage from the age of a 150 year long Ottoman occupation, like the mosque of Pasha Qasim the Victorious on Széchenyi square. (Source: vendégváró)

A fine perspective on this attractive building making good use of the path as a lead line. The person in red sat on the bench contributes much to the atmosphere. I like the attractive lighting and blend of harmonious colours. Have a good Sunday.

Veyr nice kiosk with yellow and green color. Ilike that brick path leading to the building. The girl in red sitting is a nice inclusion. I like the green trees which blend with the colors of the building.

Le regard suit naturellement le trottoir dans l'image, effleure la dame sur le banc et s'accroche sur le liosque tout jaune qui resplendit dans l'image.

La dame en rouge donne une atmosphère paisible et romantique a l'endroit, le batiment est attirant par ces couleurs et son architecture, très belle lumière et couleurs

Those kiosks are also quite common in Bavaria and surrounding.
This one with it's strong yellow color and greeny dome is quite nice.
The lady with red coat creates a perfect balance.
Again, many good and usefull notes.
TFS and best regards

this is a fine composition, with all elements well arranged!
The lady in red is a natural eye-catcher, and the paved walkway makes a fine lead into the scene...
Pleasant spring feeling with the pleasant light and fresh foliage!
