Your Debrecen sightseeing tour may well yield other unforgettable experiences if you use the city as a launching pad for further outings.
Located a mere 20 km from Debrecen, Hajdúszoboszló boasts Europe’s largest spa complex.
Less than an hour’s drive will take you to the Nyíregyháza Zoo (the nation’s biggest and most popular) or Lake Tisza Eco-Center, which is Europe’s largest fresh-water aquarium.
If you have 1.5 hours to spare, you may want to venture farther to visit other UNESCO World Heritage Sites such as the Tokaj wine region, or the caves of the Aggtelek Karst.
The historic town of Eger, famous for its legendary red wine (Bull’s Blood of Eger) as well as its ancient castle, is also within relatively easy reach.
