Day 1
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.

Hundred‑Year‑Old Confectionery

One of the essential places to visit if you are in Gyula. The name is no exaggeration. Established 180 years ago, it was the first of such confectioneries in the town, and the second in Hungary. This lovely, fine-smelling cake shop was set up in a beautiful building built for the upper middle class. Today, you will find a Confectionery Museum where the old pastry-making shop was in the past. Beware, you may have a hard time choosing from the many mouth-watering delicacies: the Erkel and Munkácsy cakes are the confectionery’s specialities, but traditional cakes and handmade chocolates and ice-creams are also temptingly delicious.

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
Goose liver is one of the best Hungarian snacks you can offer to your guests. And it tastes even better if you are the guest. Local people have been making it for a long time and it is one of the favourite dishes of traditional Hungarian cuisine. Today, it is often presented as the dish that represents Hungary and Hungarian cuisine at gastronomy festivals, national and international chef competitions.
