||Hungary CIVITAS MOBILIS
Debrecen is the second largest city in Hungary, with a population of 207,000. It is situated 220km from Budapest and plays a significant role in the country’s economic, educational, commercial, cultural and medical networks.
The Debrecen–Hajduszoboszlo–Hortobagy triangle is one of the most popular tourist locations in Hungary. The city offers quality services for health, conference and business tourism, and its flower festival is one of the biggest tourist events in Hungary. It lies at the largest railway and road junction in the eastern part of Hungary’s Great Plain and is also served by a continuously developing airport that has had international status since 2001.
