This is one of Central Europe’s most unique Reformed churches.

Kossuth Street broadens into Méliusz Square, named after Péter Méliusz Juhász, bishop of Debrecen who drew up the tenets of Hungarian Reformation. The Reformed church standing in the middle of the square was built of unplastered, red clinker bricks, which is how the building received its common name. The church was built in 1887, from the donations made by Judge István Szombathy and his wife, Zsuzsanna Veresmarty, on the basis of the plans of Samu Petz, in Neo-Gothic style. Its special feature is the inner space decorated by seccos, quite unusual in case of Reformed churches, painted by Jenő Haranghy in 1937.
