At Debrecen's city center, very easy to find. The museum holds about 25 maquettes and 56 paintings showing various scenes in the bible. You can climb and see former ruins of the building and also go to the very top where you can see the city from there. Dont remember how much i paid, but t was quite cheap. Its... More

You can't miss this if you visit the city Centre. Conveniently located at one of the tram stop and a beauty in the pictures. You just can't help but stop and grab some pictures. I heard its interior design is pretty plain inside but did not had the time to verify that this trip...

If you haven't been in a protestant church you should see this one. It totally doesn't look like a tipical church - it's almost empty inside. It's huge but has no ornaments, no ikons, no cross. Entrance: 500 ft.

The Great Church in Debrecen is a unique building with two towers and a tympanon on the front side between the towers

My graduation ceremony was held in this beautiful building a couple of years ago. Since I'm living in abroad I'm talking about my home town a lot to everyone. If you are in the city center of Debrecen, the first thing what you need to check is definitely the Great Church, in every season there's something what you can watch,... More

Very beautiful cathedral dominiating the central square. Very plain and sober inside in typical Calvinist style. There was a choir gloriously singing during my visit. Climbing the tower is worth it.

When one visits Debrecen, he/she must see this church as it is located in the center of the city. I haven't visited inside the church but good to take some great photos in front of it and many great restaurants near this place. (even close to the tram station!)

Wonderful piece of architecture in the very center of Debrecen. The Great Church represents the soul and the body of what Debrecen is today, making the real center of the town body in every imaginable way. Definitely the premier place to visit!

We took an evening (mostly self tour) of the church and it was wonderful! The view from the top at sunset was amazing and the history of the church and the college of reformation next door is worth learning.
