In the post-WWII period, most visitors to baths and spas were seeking relief for their musculoskeletal complaints, but in the 1990s, and even more so in the 2000s, there has been sharp increase and development in the Hungarian bathing culture. Many old classic baths have been renovated, and many new wellness hotels and spa complexes have opened.
These new wellness baths and spas attract visitors not only with their medicinal waters or their spectacular natural environment, but also with the wide range of services they offer. Most of them offer activities for every member of the family, from the little ones to sporty, adventurous youngsters to adults looking for peace or healing. Every wellness bath provides medical hydrological services (such as pool baths, a tub bath with medicinal water, underwater jet massage or medical therapeutic massage and mud wraps) which are in certain cases even subsidised from social security, but they also have saunas, steam baths, massages and other wellness treatments, and in some cases you can even enjoy beauty and cosmetology treatments. Sports enthusiasts can choose the swimming pool, the gym or the slides inside the baths. Both the old classic baths and the modern wellness complexes also impress with their architectural value. In addition to the historic Turkish baths and the bath resorts evoking the splendour of the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the modern wellness centres and hotels also regularly manage to make it onto the lists of top international baths.
