Pécs - Capital of Culture 2010

My hometown, Pécs has won the title European Capital of Culture 2010. To me it is the most beautiful and exciting city in the world, that has a little bit of everything. I made this wallhanging as part of my course work on a textile decoration course to celebrate Pécs.

The windows open and close to show various features of the city.
