The Great Reformed Church

Debrecen’s great centrepiece is the Great Reformed Church, standing tall at the foot of the main square and a visible landmark for orienting yourself when in town. This is a city of tangible history, much of which took place in and around this spot, the largest Calvinist church in the country. It was here that Lajos Kossuth read out Hungary’s Declaration of Independence in 1849, and the very chair from which the great man made his brave announcement now sits inside the church. The neoclassical beauty was finished in 1824, and no structure gives more credence to Debrecen’s ‘Calvinist Rome’ nickname than its most famous.
