The Heart of Debrecen consists of hundreds of gingerbread cookies and embodies love and giving, which has been exhibited by the Debrecen City Municipality in the courtyard of the Old Town Hall during Advent since 2017.
In 2020, the Heart of Debrecen was given to patients and their caregivers at the Kenézy Gyula University Hospital of the University of Debrecen. This year, thanks to the generous support of the National Association of Entrepreneurs and Employers of Hajdú-Bihar County, the Fórum Debrecen Shopping Centre received the gingerbread heart, symbolizing the care of the people of Debrecen.
The heart and the structure holding the heart were made by József Soltész, President of the Hajdú-Bihar County VOSZ and Managing Director of Sofém Kft. The gingerbread hearts were created from honey and love by Radics Mézeskalács with the support of Olivér Barna, Vice President of the Hajdú-Bihar County VOSZ, Managing Director of Főnix Média Kft.
The Heart of Debrecen can be seen on the -1st floor of the Fórum Shopping Centre until 6th January 2022.
