Hungary is extremely rich in thermal waters, its reserve is significant on a world scale and it is outstanding on European scale. Topremedy offers medical spa trips besides of the medical and beauty treatments.
The thermal lake of Hévíz is without exaggeration the world’s most beautiful bath tub.
Furthermore, it is literally overflowing with healing water. The lake, extending across an area of almost five hectares at the south-western corner of Lake Balaton, is brimming with warm, alkaline and slightly radioactive water rich in potassium salts, sulphur and hydrogen carbonate.
The spring’s powerful curative properties include relief for rheumatism. See for yourself by hiring a rubber ring and drifting dreamlike between the water lilies, floating on the water’s idyllic surface. In summer, the lake reaches temperatures of 35°C, but the water never falls below 25°C, not even in the icy cold of winter.
The temperature and water quality are maintained throughout the year, thanks to a gushing thermal spring that refills the lake every 48 hours. The resort of Hévíz is likened to Eldorado by wellness tourists, many of whom return year after year to this miraculous spring. And the claim that „the water of Hévíz can heal anything – even a broken heart” is no empty cliché.
The water of the Hévíz Lake is equally rich in dissolved substances and gases, combining the favourable effects of naturally carbonated medicinal waters and those containing sulphur, calcium, magnesium, hydrogen-carbonate, as well as those with a slightly radioactive content. The medicinal mud, which covers the bed of the lake in a thick layer, deserves special attention. The Hévíz mud, which is unique of its kind, contains both organic and inorganic substances and the radium-salts and reduced sulphuric solutions in it represent special medicinal factors. The medicinal water and mud originating from the several then thousand year-old Pannonian Sea, together with the complex physiotherapeutic treatments, are suitable for treating all kinds of rheumatic and locomotor diseases.
