Thanks to its international airport, the multi-faceted European city of Debrecen is an easily accessible travel destination from all over the world. Don’t hesitate to come and have a look around.
Did you come to the city with children? Then head for City Park. Just a ten-minute walk from the city centre is one of Debrecen’s most popular locations, with numerous activities on offer under the 100-year-old trees for young and old alike.
Hajdúszoboszló, which has become world famous for its medicinal water containing iodine, bromine and sodium chloride, is only 22 kilometres from Debrecen, and despite being home to Europe’s largest spa complex, it remains an idyllic small-town resort.
While you are in the vicinity of Hajdúság, visit Hortobágy, where you can relax on the porch of the 300-year-old Hortobágy Inn and take in the enormous grassy steppe, while sampling the shepherds’ traditional dish of slambuc (a combination of pasta, potatoes and bacon).
A stone’s throw away from Hortobágy and Debrecen, Lake Tisza and its surroundings, also called ‘Wildwater Land’, will fascinate you with both exhilarating water tours and unique bird colonies.
We have good news for sports enthusiasts: the area around Lake Tisza offers a plethora of recreation opportunities to choose from. Definitely not to be missed is the 70-kilometre bike path built around Lake Tisza, considered the safest in the country.
