Introducing Debrecen

Debrecen is Hungary's second-largest city, and its name has been synonymous with wealth and conservatism since the 16th century. Flanked by the golden Great Church and the historic Aranybika Hotel, Debrecen’s central square sets the rather subdued tone for this city. During summer frequent street festivals fill the pedestrian core with revellers, and old-town bars and nightclubs create a lively scene for night crawlers on weekends year-round. The array of museums and thermal baths in this 'Capital of the Eastern Plain' will keep you busy for a day or two, but then you’ll want to day trip out to the puszta to explore natural wonders, see a cowboy show, soak in the country’s largest spa and shop for pottery.
