Hévíz, the fountain of life!
The lake of Hévíz (Hungary) is the biggest biologically active, natural medicinal water in the world. Its temperature is affected by the combination of cold and hot spring waters coming from underground. The medicinal water breaks out from the spring cave on the surface at the rate of approx. 410 litres per second and with a temperature of 40°C. According to that delivery, the water in the lake changes every three and a half days and keeps uniformly clean.
The wonderful effects of the water were also known by our ancestors. The Romans laid the foundations for bath culture in the 2nd century. It is a unique experience to swim in water lily carpeted turquoise water in Hévíz. The biological stability of the lake is shown by the temperature of the water, which has not changed for years and even on the coldest winter days doesn’t drop below 24 degrees Celsius. That makes bathing possible in the lake the whole year round. In the summer the water temperature can reach 37 degrees Celsius. Hévíz with the fresh colours of nature and the spa town’s quiet atmosphere is an ideal place for relaxation, recovery and complete physical and mental recreation. Take time for yourself, be prepared for the challenges of the hardworking weekdays with health preserving bath cures!
