Debrecen's Reformed College

Interesting
Founded in 1538, the Reformed college owes its current Classical aspect to reconstruction work carried out between 1803 and 1816. The college is now home to a museum devoted to its history. On display are, among others, a fine collection of religious artefacts and kopjafa (wooden totems which designate the position of burial places). The oratory, also open to the public, is where the independence of Hungary was proclaimed in 1849. However the most fascinating exhibit remains the library and its thousands of books.
