Thermal Spas

Tamási thermal bath

Hippocrates, the father of medicine was the first to say that “nature cures illness”. Nature for sure has been very kind to Hungary. You will find Hungary to have one of the world’s most abundant supplies of thermal and medicinal waters. The spa culture has a history of 2000 years in Hungary going back to the Roman era. There are over 1300 known thermal springs with almost 300 used for bathing.
Heviz thermal lake

Heviz by heatherontravels

Set in a green, forested valley approx 5 miles from Lake Balaton is the world’s largest, natural, thermal lake – Lake Heviz. Warmed by the heat of the earth’s interior, it is even possible to bathe in the lake in winter. In summer the water temperature reaches over 35 deg C. All across Hungary experienced doctors and well qualified staff are on hand to care for visitors at the medicinal baths, sanatoriums, health spas and wellness hotels which have been built around these waters. The treatments are custom-tailored and a special treatment package is put together based on a preliminary consultation to establish a person’s physical condition. The possible variations of treatment are virtually unlimited.
Without doubt visitors should try and visit a health spa – the thermal springs are unique and have a wonderful impact on the whole body, and in particular locomotive disorders – arthritis and rheumatism especially. Many of the larger hotels offer sport and fitness as well as anti-aging and beauty programmes – much beyond traditional therapies and massage. The water contains calcium, magnesium, hydrogen carbonate, sulphur and chloride which provides natural cures for mobility disorders, arthritis, rheumatism and skin complaints such as eczema.
