MUSEUMS
 
Debrecen:
Museum of the Reformed College of Debrecen. Permanent exhibition entitled "Calvinist Rome, Christian Respublica, Hungarian Geneva". The historical role of Debrecen was often compared to that of the city of Calvin. Due primarily to its printing house and school, the “Hungarian Geneva” became a great power of significant intellectual influence. http://www.refo500.nl/news/view/1660/museum-of-the-reformed-college-of-debrecen.html
