It is said that there is a sea of thermal and medicinal water underneath Hungary
These are not just empty words – there are thermal pools, water parks, wellness facilities and therapeutic spas in 70 locations all around the country thanks to the beneficial effects of more than 300 thermal springs. Some of them were used by the ancient Romans 2000 years ago! It is no coincidence that Budapest is the only capital city that is also a major spa centre. Out of all spa facilities in Budapest which use more than 100 thermal springs, a special place belongs to the historical Turkish baths.
You will find dozens of them in Hungary and they are among the most modern in Central Europe. An exquisite example is a water park opened inside a beach swimming pool resort in Hajdúszoboszló in 2000. Alongside pools you can enjoy a whirling river, children's water castle and more than 10 slides of different shapes, lengths and difficulty levels. Due to the enormous popularity, the whole resort has been enlarged several times - most recently in 2010 when an all-year adventure Aqua Palace was opened. In addition to a 74 meters long water slide and countless services (saunas, hairdresser's, manicure, shops, eating facilities...) you can enjoy 8 theme pools - Roman bath, cave bath, tropical bath... We invite you to step into this world of water adventure!
Wellness & spa
Alongside the well-known therapeutic spas there have been dozens of modern wellness hotels built in Hungary over the last decade. It is part of a global trend that emphasizes prevention and active relax. In addition to relaxing at the pool and in sauna these hotels offer different kinds of massages, sports programmes, cycling and excursions nearby. We would like to point out Bükfürdő Spa, situated near the Alps or Sárvár Spa located in the picturesque town full of monuments, recently included among the 10 therapeutic sites with royal history in Europe. In the northern part of Hungary, we recommend you to visit Eger Spa, built in the famous wine region during the Turkish occupation or the unique cave bath Miskolctapolca. We point out these sites for your inspiration only, you will be happy in other spas and wellness facilities as well, there are several dozens of them in Hungary!
Lake Balaton tourist resorts are experiencing renaissance after the enlargement and improvement of services offered. However, we would like to draw your attention to another one, worldwide unique lake. It is Hévíz Lake - the world's largest natural lake with medicinal thermal water that keeps the water temperature above 25°C during the winter as well! The lake is surrounded by forests which not only provides a pleasant scenery but also offers therapeutic effects of extremely pure air. Or would you rather prefer sandy beaches of Lake Tisza with the thermal baths and spa Tiszafüred? Here you can indulge in a bit of adrenaline when driving water scooters.
