One of the things I love in Debrecen is its international spirit. There are almost 6000 international students of 113 different nations studying at the University of Debrecen. You can meet them not only around the campus, but all over the city. I believe that gastronomy is one of the best ways to get to know each other’s cultures. The best occasion for this in Debrecen is the International Food Day held every year in May in front of the main building of the university. There you can taste the international students’ traditional national foods prepared and served by the students themselves, usually wearing their national costumes. Besides the culinary delights, live performances entertain the public, so the UD’s international students can demonstrate not only their cooking skills but also how talented and colorful they are. If you like trying new tastes and experiencing different cultures, don’t miss this festival!
