Active recreation


Sport, like music, is a universal language which connects nations. It means the same thing to everyone involved: experiencing the tough challenge and the taste of victory for athletes; surviving the nail-biting, oftentimes heart-breaking, finish to the game for fans.

The very best representatives of various sports have proved their mettle on land and ice, in water and air in several international sports events in Debrecen. Besides mass sports, Debrecen and its area offer countless sports and recreation opportunities.
