Xploring Hungary Video: Debrecen & The Great Plain
Located in Eastern Hungary, the Great Hungarian Plain lies on liquid gold: if you bore a hole anywhere on this majestic plain, you will most likely find thermal water.

The region’s Hajdúszoboszló offers the largest bath & spa complex in Europe, where you can find out for yourself why the local thermal water is regarded as a miraculous medicine.

Hungary’s second largest city, Debrecen is also located in this area, welcoming visitors with its vibrant cultural life, exciting local gastronomy, and the genuine buzz of a bustling city.

Those who travel to this city can enjoy the tropical atmosphere of the local spa or discover all the fun and entertainment the City Park (Nagyerdő) offers.

The eastern Hungarian town of Hajdúszoboszló has long been one of the most popular touristic destinations of Hungary.

Guests can enjoy its medicinal bath, the water of which is internationally recognised for providing highly effective treatment for musculoskeletal disorders.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hortobágy is the most characteristic region of the Great Hungarian Plains and the largest alkaline grassland in Europe. It is located 40 kilometres away from the second most populated city in Hungary, Debrecen. 

This national park, covering nearly 80,000 hectares, boasts unrivalled natural treasures and traditions. The sight of the unbroken horizon, mirages called to life by the sweltering summer heat, the iconic shadoofs, herds of horses racing freely, Hungarian Grey cattle and flocks of sheep grazing peacefully - these are all part of the scenery in the area giving you feeling of boundless freedom and idyllic peace.
