Reformed Great Church of Debrecen

It is the symbol of the Protestant Church in Hungary, and it is because of this church that Debrecen is sometimes referred to as “the Calvinist Rome”.

The Reformed Great Church or Great Reformed Church in Debrecen is located in the city of Debrecen. It stands in the city centre, between Kossuth square and Kalvin square. With a ground space of 1500 m² it is the largest Protestant church in Hungary. It also has the largest bell of all Hungarian Protestant churches. The Great Church was built between 1805 and 1824 in neoclassical style.

It is possible for visitors to climb to the top of the West Tower (210 steps!) and those who do will be rewarded with a wonderful view across of the city. The Rákóczi Bell which is housed in the tower is the largest bell in Hungary.
