Debrecen, the country's second largest city received the title "Calvinist Rome" in the 16th century because of its pivotal role in the Reformation. A town of learning since the Middle Ages, and the "capital" of the War of Independence in 1848-49.
Highlights of the city's cultural offer: the colourful Flower Carnival on 20 August, Jazz Days, and the very popular Summer University for those who wish to learn Hungarian.
The CALVINIST GREAT CHURCH has become the symbol of Debrecen. With a puritan interior, seating for 3000 makes it the country's largest Calvinist church. An important relic is is the armchair of Lajos Kossuth (1802-1894). The dethronement of the House of Habsburgs was declared here. Organ concerts are held in the church, and there is a fireworks display in front of the church every 20 August.
