This blog post is part of a series of several posts aiming to give advice to those who are planning on studying abroad at Debrecen University in the near future. You can find an overview of all pots here.
Walking is a good way to get to know the city, have a look at nice buildings and also gives you a daily workout. The walk from the main building and its surrounding area (Faculty of arts, humanities, living sciences, Kossuth dormitory) to the city center takes about 30 minutes. Walking to the Campus Hotel and the nearby swimming pool takes about 15 minutes.
If you don’t feel like walking, you can take the tram. There are two lines. Number 1 (blue) takes you from Egyetem (University) to the city center (Kossuth tér) and back. A single ride costs 400 Ft (1,30 €) per person. A ticket for an entire month costs 3.300 Ft (11 €) for students with a valid international or Debrecen student identity card. It is valid the first of a month until the 5th of the next month and can be bought at the ground floor of the university’s main building.
