I love Debrecen’s international atmosphere, with a population of almost 6000 international students from 113 different nations, most of whom study at the University of Debrecen. I believe that gastronomy is one of the best ways to get to know other cultures. In Debrecen, the best occasion for this is the International Food Day held every year in May in front of the main building of the university where you can taste the traditional national dishes of international students. The food is prepared and served by the students by themselves, usually wearing their national folk costumes. Besides culinary delights, live music and dance performances entertain the public. If you like trying new flavors and experiencing different cultures, don’t miss this festival!
