If you've enjoyed a trip to Budapest, Lake Balaton, or Pecs, and you want to see some more of Hungary, a holiday rental Debrecen could be perfect for you. Debrecen is one of Hungary's cultural and intellectual capitals; there's plenty to see and do. The city's most notable landmark is the grand 17th century neoclassical Reformed Great Church; you can climb the bell tower for amazing views across the city. Another must-see is the Deri Museum, an art museum whose collection spans Greek and Roman art, modern art, the Old Masters, and more. There's also the Modem museum of modern art, the literary museum, and the sculpture museum. Debrecen holiday rentals are also great for families: children will love Vojtina puppet theatre, which shows Hungarian folk tales, and the Tanner's House, which is a museum offering an insight into the lives of local craftsmen such as felt makers and dress makers.
Debrecen is home to many festivals – the most important one of the year is Flower Carnival, which takes place on the 20th of August, the day of the foundation of Hungary. The main event of the festival is street procession of cars decorated with hundreds of thousands of flowers, as well as folk dance groups and musicians. There is a street party and firework display to close the festival.
Not far from Debrecen is Hadjuszoboszlo Hungarospa, the largest spa in the country, made for both relaxation and medical treatment – take a day trip here from your Debrecen holiday rental for some ultimate relaxation. The Hortobagy national park is also worth a visit; it was Hungary's first national park and is now a World Heritage site.
