Dehir Diána Széles, Deputy Mayor for Tourism of Debrecen, commented on the investment.
– We received a HUF 25 million government grant to set up the office. I consider it important to be able to serve the visitors and the people of Debrecen in a central location in the city center, as it will not only be worth visiting the office for tourists. We are also making a lot of innovations with the city card, we are very much looking forward to the end of this pandemic period and the resumption of life. Last season, tourism practically stopped, now we are preparing a lot of developments. We hope that people will enjoy traveling, so we want to use every opportunity to inform visitors and make them feel as comfortable as possible in Debrecen.
