In the 16th century the town, described as the "Calvinist Rome" became the centre of the reformation in Hungary. For short periods in 1849 and 1944 Debrecen was the temporary capital of the country. The Calvinist College has a traditional importance in culture and education with its library having a remarkable collection of old books.
