Debrecen, the second largest town of Hungary, was always proud of higher education. The Reformed College of Debrecen was founded in 1538. The College gave home to a wide array of higher education developments, which greatly contributed to the foundation of a Hungarian Royal University in 1912. The centenary of Institution of the Hungarian Royal University will be celebrated in 2012.

Many great and eminent events and programs are in the centenary event calendar. One of them was our event, DEocaching 2012. Its success has instigated us to organize the event DEocaching 2013.

We welcome everybody

  • who doesn't know what is geocaching, but is interested in it;
  • who knows what is geocaching, but has never tried it before;
  • who has tried it, but doesn't do it usually;
  • who is professional in geocaching.

What does it mean?

We recommend our event for three groups of people.

For the group of the professionals many races in different categories are organised (well-known and new games). You may find more details (but some pieces of the secret kept) under the menu 'Competition'.

We provide the opportunity for families, the students of the University and high schools of Debrecen to compete in small groups.

The most important ones are the kids, who can participate in colorful program. Of course, the geocaching is a part of it.
