"Fall in Love with the Great Church!"


Special Experiences Await Visitors at Debrecen's Imposing Reformed Great Church This Summer The magnificent Reformed Great Church in the main square of Debrecen offers unique experiences for visitors during the summer. As part of the "Loving Great Church" program series starting on July 9th, playful puzzles allow exploration of the church's secrets every Tuesday, while on Thursdays, the church's organ—one of the country's most beautiful sounding—can be heard in live concerts. An exclusive experience is the evening church tour every Wednesday, where visitors can not only explore the church spaces with a guide but also admire the sunset and the magical lights of the city center from the panoramic walkway between the two towers, with a glass of wine in hand.
