An international group spreads the word about Hungarian “Hidden city”

“I never used to care about what was going on behind my back, but while sitting in a wheelchair it has become the most important thing”
“Somehow it never occurred to me that you not only have to go up a ramp, but also down. And it’s scary in a wheelchair”
“I will look at the world in a completely different way after trying the white cane”
A large international team is taking these experiences home with them by trying the People First Association’s Hidden City Tor Tour again. (

Once again, they will pass on to many people those useful experiences that are not enough to say, they must be lived!

The team, coming from several countries, participated in a conference entitled “Disabilities and abilities framed by context” in the framework of the EDUC project of the University of Pécs/Hungary. At this conference Veronika Pataki, president of People First Association, presented our Accessible Pécs Database ( to the international audience. The additional programme of the conference (MICE-Tourism) was the Hidden City Tor-Tour in the evening, led by our vice-president Gergő Berkes in his usual uplifting mood.

This is a fundamental objective for us, to offer our Hidden City Tor Tour as an accompanying professional programme for conferences, meetings and events in the framework of MICE Tourism. This programme on 16. January is a good example of this.

A pécsi Király utcában kihelyezett makett körül áll a nemzetközi csapat. Este van, sötét, a háttérben a kirakatok fényei csillognak. A makett a teret ábrázolja. Gergő, a túra vezetője, kerekesszékben ül a makett mellett és mesél az érdeklődő csapatnak. Néhányan már felvették a csökkent látást szimuláló szemüveget, a fehér bot is előkerült.
