The developing city also needs hotels. Debrecen has recently been the site of many prestigious international sporting events. That is why it is important for the city to be able to present itself as a host who can provide high-quality services in all areas of tourism, said the head of the ministry.

Today we can celebrate a real gap-filling investment, as the last time we opened a large, high-quality hotel was 10-12 years ago. Laszlo Papp said it was time to make significant progress again in hotel development. The mayor of Debrecen emphasized that one of the main challenges of the metropolitan city is to balance the development between its districts. Therefore, in addition to strengthening the economy, it is important to open up new opportunities in the field of tourism investments. – Before the epidemic, the number of guest nights in Debrecen was about 509,000. He emphasized that in the first half of this year we hit 300,000, so we can be confident that we’ll hit 2019 numbers again. He also added that Debrecen’s strength lies in event tourism, the city has many world-famous events, and its visitors are looking for quality accommodations.
