First experiences in Debrecen
If you have never been to Debrecen and its surroundings, give a chance! Come and see this area! You can attend one of the sightseeing tours as individuals or with groups (link to guiding), or an adventure puszta programme by carriage!
Before the arrival of the Magyars, several different tribes lived in the area of present-day Debrecen, many of them also settled here for shorter or longer periods. Even the ancient Romans had a military encampment here; our ancestors then took the area from the Bulgar duke Menumorut, and it has been continuously occupied by Magyars and is thus one of the most ancient of all Hungarian cities.
Debrecen the vibrant city
Debrecen is Hungary’s second largest city with a population of 210,000. The original meaning of its name (“let it live and move”) is testament to the city’s dynamic present-day development. Thanks to its religious, political, and economic power, historic Debrecen got to assume a quasi-city-state status and it has served twice as the nation’s capital.
