Visiting Debrecen, Hungary
Debrecen is situated near the Romania-Hungarian border, about 60 km from Oradea (just like Hajduszoboszlo just in other direction), and it seems to be really similar with Oradea. If you live long time in Oradea like me and you go to Debrecen at the first look you can’t difference the two cities, in terms of building styles and they arrangement, especially in the center of the city.
But if you walk on the street of Debrecen you will find some differences. My opinion is that this city is much cleaner than Oradea. You can’t find cigarette stubs, paper hankies, threw on the streets sidewalks. In other words I think the peoples are different.
However how I mentioned before the Debrecen is really similar with Oradea, a lot of cars, supermarkets, trams.
One of the most outstanding part of the city is his university, it is fantastic. I had the honor to visit it with my friends. The first think what I noticed that his buildings (especially the main building) are much bigger than the buildings of University of Oradea. The second thing is the shape; it is much like a university than U Oradea, the whole shape is designed to look like a university. The interior is really great, a big place in the middle and the classes are situated round and round. The style of the building is barock style but, not completely, a lot of arcades and brown colored wood are used.
It is really beautiful city, and I will visiting it soon because I heard about its zoo, and I want to see it, I will write about it also.

Genius. This is one of the best bars in Debrecen. The interior is dark red and is furnished with lounge chairs that give the place a warm and cozy feeling. Genius is a perfect place to unwind after a long day. It serves different kinds of cocktail drinks and renders live music for the public. Joy Bar. This is one of the favorite hangouts of younger crowds in Debrecen. Joy Bar has only a few tables and seats, and the dance floor is small. It plays hip hop and dance music, and it has a small casino. The bar is usually jam-packed during weekends.... Read more »
