Soak in the thermal waters of northern Hungary

Cascade Cave BathDemjén Thermal Valley Eger region

There are five medicinal caves and 17 healing places in Hungary, five of which are found in the north of the country. There’s no better place to pamper yourself after a long day’s outing.

The water in the more than 400-year-old Turkish Bath in Eger contains radon, which alleviates spinal pain, but fans of wellness should also try other thermal waters in the region. The Thermal Valley Spa and Bath in Demjén, a village just a few kilometres from Eger, has three kinds of thermal and medicinal waters, or you can take a dip in the sulphuric medicinal water-filled pool of the salt hill lying to the south of Egerszalók, but if you visit the centre of Matyóföld, you should also stop at the famous Zsóry Bath in Mezőkövesd.

Mátraderecske and Parádfürdő are about a 30-minute drive from Eger, and have two special healing gas spas. Due to the post-eruption activity of a volcano, a mofetta (fumarole) emerges here that contains much carbon dioxide, providing relief for vein problems, among other things.

Parádfürdő: the centre of healing for 290 years

The unique Parádfürdő Valley was already considered to be a healing place back in 1730. This was due not only to the mofetta, but also the famous Parád waters, like the Csevice water, which contains sulphur and is primarily used to treat intestinal conditions.
