History of Hungary as a leader in Spa & Wellness
Hungary is blessed with natural water sources all over the country which bring up healthy and warm water all year long. During the Turkish occupation the Turks also brought their bathing culture and affection for steam baths, saunas and other, nowadays know as wellness and healing treatments. Over the years after the occupation Hungary developed its own bathing culture keeping old traditions from the Turks alive. The Spa culture as we know it today is a Hungarian culture with influences from the Turks.
Many people visit Hungary just for that reason, no matter if it is the capital Budapest, the famous Heviz next to Lake Balaton or the western Sopron which is closed to Austria and attracts a lot of Austrians, Hungary is well known for its Spa culture worldwide.
