Debrecen and surroundings

Hajdúszoboszló, located 30 kilometers from Europe’s largest saline rangeland, Hortobágy, and 22 kilometers from Debrecen, is Hungary’s third most popular holiday resort. This municipality of the Great Hungarian Plain, famous for its 73-degree hot thermal water rich in iodine, bromine and sodium chloride, is only outdone by Budapest and Hévíz.

Its medicinal waters were found in 1925, during local exploratory drilling made in search of oil and gas. In a short time it became apparent that the waters brought relief to all manners of rheumatic diseases. For this reason, in the last 95 years, it was here – particularly in the town’s Bánomkert district – that Europe’s largest spa complex was constructed, becoming quite popular not only with Hungarians but also with foreign visitors.

Aquapark: a paradise of slides for the adventurous

Big Hole, Twister and Niagara – just some of the slides you can try when visiting the Aquapark. In 2014, the place was expanded with an extreme zone, bringing the total to 15 tracks. In addition to the popular adventure slides, among other things, a free-falling tunnel, water loop, tsunami and space pod await you. All these start out from a 16 meters high tower so excitement is guaranteed even before you get on the slide but the most courageous can even try their hand at rock climbing. The park did not forget about the small children either as they can try miniature slides and, for example, a water castle.
