City Introduction

Debrecen is a city in eastern Hungary. It is the country’s second largest city and one of the cultural centers of Hungary. Debrecen experienced great growth from the latter half of the 13th century, when the aftermath of the Mongol invasion of that time manifested the city as a regional center. Debrecen also developed as a prosperous market town and later an important site of the Hungarian Reformation. In the middle of the 19th century, the city was a transitional capital, which was during the Hungarian Revolution.

The square Kossuth tér is the center of the city, and here is the large Református nagytemplom church, which is one of the landmarks of Debrecen. The church is beautifully located on the square, and it is Hungary’s largest Protestant church. It was built in neoclassicism in the years 1805-1824. You can also see Debrecen’s Catholic Cathedral, Szent Anna székesegyház, which is a fine baroque church with a grand interior from the first half of the 18th century.

In Debrecen you can visit several interesting museums such as Déri Múzeum, which is a large museum of archaeology, history, art and folklore. The museum is in a neo-baroque building that was constructed 1923-1929. At Museum of Debrecen Reformed College there are also large and interesting collections. You can see other beautiful buildings as well such as the Csokonai Nemzeti Színház theater from 1865, which is Debrecen’s oldest and largest theater with an architecture inspired by the Moorish style.

A short distance north of the center of Debrecen is the city’s large university, whose castle-like main building is one of Debrecen’s best-known constructions. The building was commissioned in 1932 and built in an architecture that was inspired by both neo-baroque and eclectic styles. In the same area, you can visit the Aquaticum thermal bath, where you can enjoy natural water from the underground at different temperatures.
