Museums, galleries


The cultural riches of Debrecen and Hortobágy are unique and iconic in their own right. The streets and varied architectural styles of the “civic city” create a pleasant atmosphere.

You can get insights into Debrecen’s past and form predictions about its future strolling in the city’s streets and squares at your leisure. However, you won’t see the whole picture until you check out the excellent exhibits at Tímárház, Déri Museum, Debrecen House of Literature & Medgyessy Ferenc Memorial Museum or Modem Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art. The historic city center includes the area that spreads out from Nagyállomás (Main Railway Terminal) to the magnificent Reformed Big Church, located on Main Square, and also includes the museum quarter.
