Day 1
Gyula Castle

This grand Gothic border fortress was once one of the three strongest in the country. It was not built from rocks and stones, but from bricks fired from clay dug up from the Körös Rivers. After the 129 years of Ottoman rule, it was used as a brewery, pálinka house, archives and even a prison. Today, it functions as a museum with 24 rooms, presenting relics from the rich past of the town.

Gyula Castle Spa

Take a pleasant stroll from the castle to reach the Gyula Castle Spa and AquaPalace. This is one of the most pleasant and highest-quality spas and baths in the Great Plain area. It’s an outstanding destination for anyone looking to relax and enjoy themselves, no matter what time of the year you visit. The special sauna park, the wellness centre with its many fun attractions, the wave pool and the swimming pool are situated in the middle of an ancient park full of rare plants.

During your visit

Spirits
If you are aware of what it means to make pálinka from fruit, you will truly appreciate quince pálinka from Nagykunság. But if not, you’ll still be full of praise: its strong smell and taste come from the best characteristics of quince essence. It has been protected for some time now, which also serves as a guarantee of quality.
Gastronomy
You’ll definitely want to eat before you even get to the end of the sentence. Just two short words: Gyula sausage. One of the best-known products in Hungary has been made for a long time, gaining international fame in 1910, when it was awarded the gold medal at the Brussels World’s Fair. The original recipe for Gyula sausage was invented by a butcher, András Stéberl. Just one more thing you absolutely must try when in Gyula.
