Description: The idea of the park behind the Big Church was initiated by the Memorial Garden Society founded in 1861. The society was supported by the donation of great value by two Debrecen citizens with the purpose of planting the whole square with flowers and trees. The society planted the park with special trees, had a well bored and a cast iron fence mounted around the square. You can also see here the Statue of Prince István Bocskai who settled the Hajdús. They had originally been armed herdsmen who fought against the Habsburgs under the leadership of István Bocskai, the Prince of Transylvania. Later, the Hajdús settled in great numbers in settlements around Debrecen, in the so-called Hajdú towns.
