Welcome to Debrecen!


10 years of the Debrecen Value Directory

The task of the Local Treasury is to take stock of the values and achievements of a given community that have become decisive on the way from the past to the present. The number of assets collected over the years is now over 130.

The Great Church was one of the first to be included in the Debrecen Register of Values and has since become a national monument.

The Great Forest, which was listed as a national nature reserve in 1939 with number one. The Debrecen Flower Carnival, the Debrecen Summer University and the International Bethlehem Festival, which has since been included in the Unesco list, are outstanding examples of the presentation and promotion of Hungarian cultural heritage, the Béla Bartók International Choir Competition and Folklore Festival, the Debrecen thermal culture, Debrecen ceramics, pottery, pottery, gingerbread, Debrecen handicrafts, among which the embroidery of the Debrecen small bundle and the Debrecen beaded pillow are special values.

The gastronomic values of Debrecen, which have been included in the local heritage: the Debrecen pároskolbász (double sausage), but we are equally proud of the Debrecen stuffed cabbage and honey products.

Among the artists from Debrecen who have shaped the canons of national culture, we have included Mihály Csokonai Vitéz, Lőrinc Szabó, Magda Szabó, Ferenc Medgyessy, Árpád Tóth, Mihály Fazekas, and among the societies, the Ady Society, the Csokonai Circle, and we have also included the Herbarium of Méliusz and the legacy of György Déri, which has given the city a collection that rivals that of the Ethnographic Museum.
