Debrecen’s first and most famous street preserves its history in its name – from the 16th century to the present day, for 300 years the famous Debrecen fairs were held here. Piac Street took on its present appearance at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, a period when Debrecen’s architecture was characterised by a wave of large-scale construction projects.

The former single-storey houses, almost exclusively on the ground floor, were replaced by two-, three- and multi-story buildings, built by the city, financial institutions, and other investors. The turn-of-the-century palaces, as the people of Debrecen, called the multi-storey buildings erected at the turn of the century, and the merchants’ houses from earlier centuries, have a wealth of local historical and architectural value. Walking along Piac Street from the Reformed Church to the Great Station, it is worth taking a closer look at these buildings, which not only tell a lot about the history of the city but also give an insight into the world of architecture.
