Today Debrecen is a steadily developing center of Eastern Hungary. Its international airport connects the city with several European destinations, and it is only a two-hour drive from the capital, Budapest.
Hungary’s second largest city offers a rich variety of sights and programs to its visitors who can feel the bustling life of the early 1900s and the atmosphere of a 21st-century dynamic city at the same time.
Debrecen is a city worth a visit.
It may take only a couple of hours to walk through the historic downtown, Debrecen’s beating heart, but the attentive sightseer will find a breathtaking amount of historical-cultural nuggets in every single square meter. The city’s well-known symbol, the Reformed Big Church, the Reformed College which has been continuously operating since 1538, the Déri Museum and the MODEM that display outstanding collections of cultural importance, the more than 150-year-old Csokonai Theater or the baroque Saint Ann Cathedral are must-visit places.
