Hungary’s second largest and populous city, located in the North-East. It has a significant cultural heritage and dubbed as the ‘Calvinist Rome’ as it has a very strong bond to the reformation and its giant Grand Church is largest protestant church in Hungary and one of the biggest one in Europe.
The sport-loving city has an extremely busy sporting life, it has numerous outstanding sport venues and hosted a series of European and World Championships in several sports while its football club won the Hungarian league seven times in the new millennium and could even make the group stage of the Champions League in 2009 (the women’s handball team was a European protagonist in the 90s).
Not surprisingly, it was one of the first county capitals in Hungary to build a new indoor swimming complex with a seating capacity of 3,5000, which hosted the 2007 European Short-Course Swimming Championships and five years later the swimming events of the 2012 European Aquatics Championships. It also welcomed several editions of the swimming Nationals (in this April too) but also hosted several water polo events including the FINA Men’s World League European Qualifiers in early 2021, the first FINA event held after the halt caused by the Covid pandemic.
