Welcome to Debrecen!


Memorial Garden

The Memorial Garden occupies the leafy plot between the Great Church and the College.

Here stands the statue of István Bocskai, Prince of Transylvania, who settled his “Hajdú” warriors in the vicinity of Debrecen.

Another memorial commemorates 40 Protestant preachers sentenced to hard labor during the anti-Reformist revolts.

As a high point of his Debrecen visit in August 1991, Pope John Paul II laid a wreath on the base of the pillar to symbolize peace and reconciliation among Christian denominations.
