Hi, there
Don't miss out to visit in Debrecen the University of Debrecen, one of the most outstanding buildings in the city. It is really a university style building, and it is really huge and impressive. There is a nice fountain in the garden in front of the building where you can cool yourself when the wether is hot.
Also visit the city's zoo, it has a lot of animals like giraffe, zebras, monkeys, and much more. And it is not expensive.
The center of the city is really great, a lot of old style buildings, most of them have a plate with the date of construction and the name of the sponsor.
