Hévíz and the thermal baths in Hungary

The land of Hungary is rich in thermal baths. Some are famous such as the monumental Gellért Baths of the capital with the atmosphere of Liberty. Therefore if you travel to Hungary my advice is to always have in stock a swimsuit and a towel because you may encounter special places. For example, if you are around in the southern part of the country near portions of Lake Balaton you can just pop in Hévíz. This city is completely dedicated to the thermal baths and wellness with hotels, guest houses and rooms for every budget.

The core of the city is the spa town which is one of a kind. Hèviz is in fact a large round lake of natural thermal water and surrounded by wooden buildings that are part of the establishment with a notable characteristic, the roofing tip.

The hot water flows and the temperature ranges from 25 degrees in winter and 38 in summer. You can immerse yourself in the lake outside or inside the tub. The lake has the characteristic of having a depth of peat which is quite unusual and is not associated with the black water. In addition, this water is so dark warm that it is enveloping and tends to float very little. But it does this very well. The properties of this water are numerous. In fact it contains carbon dioxide, sulfur, calcium, magnesium, and is also slightly radioactive.
