Phone numbers in Debrecen
I am trying to get hold of an old Hungarian friend of mine, and I have her old number in Debrecen that doesn't seem to work: 36-52-326-875. My guess is, the phone number has changed. Is there a way to find out what should I dial now? Altrnatively, should someone from Debrecen be so kind to be willing to help me out, I shall send an e-mail with the address in Debrecen, so that perhaps one could check at the local phone book. Many thanks!

Travel Tips for Debrecen
Debrecen - a historic city
Debrecen is located in the eastern part of Hungary, about 220 km from Budapest. It's the second largest Hungarian city, although it has a significantly less cosmopolitan atmosphere than the capital.
Debrecen has been an important economic and cultural centre since the Middle Ages. In the 16th century, the teachings of Protestant Reformation were embraced by the people of Debrecen and the city received the nickname "Calvinist Rome". The Calvinist College of Debrecen, the predecessor of the modern University, was founded in 1538, and it was attended by many famous Hungarian artists, scientists and politicians.
In the spring of 1849, during the revolution and independence war against Austria and the Hapsburg empire, Debrecen was the capital of Hungary for a short time when the Hungarian revolutionary government fled there from Pest-Buda (modern-day Budapest). In April 1849, the dethronization of the Habsburgs and the independence of Hungary was proclaimed here by Lajos Kossuth in the Nagytemplom (Protestant Great Church).

The 'Nagy' forest is located by the University and it is beautiful during the changing seasons to see all the colours in the trees. It is also located behind the Thermal Hotel with a nice little play ground for the children and a little pond which is overwhelmed by frogs in the summer!!
Debrecen is one of the major cities in Hungary, in the eastern part of the country, about 220 km from Budapest.
The city has played a significant cultural and political role in Hungarian history. For Hungarians, Debrecen's heritage is predominantly related to the Reformation, and to the 1848-49 revolution and war of independence against the Hapsburg rule.
The Reformed Great Church (Nagytemplom) is the most famous building of Debrecen and the symbol of the city. The views from the church tower are excellent.
The Kossuth Lajos University of Arts and Sciences is one of the largest and the most beautiful universities in Hungary.
Het Calvinistische Rome.
Debrecen heeft nu meer dan 210.000 inwoners en ontwikkelde zich van een belangrijk landbouwcentrum tot een industriestad. De stad is het economisch en culturele centrum van de Tiszantul (Gebied aan de andere zijde van de Tisza), feitelijk dus van Oost Hongarije.
Sinds 1984 is Debrecen tevens kuuroord.
Debrecen is de derde stad van het land.
"Het Calvinistische Rome":
Debrecen was in de 16e eeuw het calvinistisch centrum van Hongarije. In 1540 traden de bewoners als een blok tot het protestantisme. Vanaf 1552 mochten zich alleen nog protestanten in de stad vestigen. De Rooms-Katholieke kerk werd gesloten. Vanuit Debrecen werd gepoogd het calvinistische geloof te verbreiden over het land en strijd te voeren tegen de RK-kerk. Zo is de bijnaam "Het Calvinistische Rome" te verklaren.
De leefwijze van de mensen in die tijd moest even streng zijn als in Geneve onder het regime van Calvijn. Vandaar de bijnaam van de stad destijds: Het Hongaarse Geneve.
Ook nu nog is Debrecen het centrum van het calvinisme: van de ruim tien miljoen Hongaren belijden er twee miljoen het calvinistische geloof.
