The “Mud Bridge”

From the 1600s up until the 1900s transportation on Piac Street, the city’s main street was secured by a 650-meter-long wooden bridge.

The Big Bridge on the western side was 6-7 m wide whereas the so-called Small Bridge of a similar structure on the other side was built for pedestrians. Coaches moved along the bridge in the mud. The remnants of the demolished “Mud Bridge” can still be seen under the glass plate built into the pavement in front of the Aranybika Hotel. This is our city’s unique archaeological find and also shows the traces of the fires which continually hindered Debrecen’s development. Its depth, on the other hand, shows the street level of the mid-19th century as well as the embankment built up since that time.
