Travel Guide to Debrecen, Hungary

Debrecen is the second largest city of Hungary in terms of population. This place has been always famous for its rebellious spirit and craving for freedom. The inhabitants of Debrecen did not accept kings and emperors and the majority of them decided to change the faith from Catholic to Calvinism. Kossuth Lajos was the main Hungarian revolutionary, who proclaimed the independence of Hungary in famous until our days Calvinist cathedral. The architecture of the city is different from other cities of Hungary as here you will not find many details and decorations, but the grandiosity of buildings is really impressive. Calvinist Square that is also the beginning of Piac Street, is known by its amazing houses and street lights decorated with baskets of flowers.
Among the multiple local sights and place of interest we should mention the largest Reformed Church in Hungary and the reformed college organized nearby, Deri Museum (exhibits large collection of ethnographic and archeological items and pictures), the Calvinist Library with stock exceeding 300 thousand books including rare incunabula, and much more.
There is a magnificent Alfold Park in the northern part of the city. The park is also named “big wood”, and its heart hides a spring of thermal water and a health complex, where visitors can have rest, visit revitalizing baths (there are approximately 18 of them) with temperature of water ranging from 20 to 40 degrees by C.
