Reformed Great Church

Everything is “great” in Debrecen, including the city park and the church. The Reformed Great Church can seat up to 2,000 people, and is home to Kossuth’s chair and the Vizsoly Bible. It has one of the country’s finest organs, and you can even visit the organ loft. Take your time and enjoy the quality environment of the book store café.


Déri Museum

The best-known attraction is the Munkácsy Hall, but the Chamber of Wonders, the Samurai Courthouse, the interactive archaeological exhibition and the Great Forest sections presented as a natural treasure trove offer visitors not only knowledge, but also exciting entertainment.

A walk in Debrecen

Discover Debrecen with the help of a tour guide who knows every corner of the town. You can join traditional, thematic or alternative tours. The Explore Debrecen thematic tours are built around classic sights, Jewish heritage, gastronomy or even legends.


During your visit


This region was known far and wide for its apple orchards. At the market, the ‘Szabolcs’ apple was a sought-after fruit. Apple Pálinka from Szabolcs is made from carefully selected and locally grown apples. It benefits from geographical protection, and a visit to the distillery always includes a tasting.


‘Goulash’ in Hungarian means a dish and also a profession, i.e. cowherd. It’s not just a profession, though. It’s a vocation. The king of Hungarian dishes is made on an open fire, and was the favourite dish of the cowherds and horse-herds living in Hortobágy. It tastes of freedom.
