Thermal spa resorts and wellness hotels in Hajduszoboszlo, Hungary
Hajdúszoboszló is on the northeastern part of Alföld, 200 kms from Budapest and 20 kms from Debrecen. It is bordered by three important regions: Hortobágy, Hajdúhát, and the region of Sárrét-Berettyó. The town is one of the earliest known settlements in Hungary - there were permanent settlings here around 3500 BC. Its name first appears in the founding documents of the Abbey of Garamszentbenedek in 1075 as Szoboszlóvásár, although some believe its name is of Slavic origin.
The city's most notable gem is the 73 degree Celsius, peculiar smelling, brownish colored medicinal water which has, since its discovery in 1925, become the prime attraction for thousands of tourists. The country's largest and well-renowned resort not only provides thermal baths, but is home to a beach, a wave pool, a bubble bath, an open-air and closed swimming competition venues. The Aquapark, opened in 2000, is a fun waterslide park reminiscent of the ones found at coastal resorts.
Hajdúszoboszló is rich in museums and historical monuments. We can find Zoltán Rácz's Harangház (Bell Tower) in the park across from the bath resort. It was inaugurated during the millennial celebrations. One of the town's most notable monuments is the XV. century protestant church on Kálvin tér (Kálvin square) with its fortified wall. The murals in the roman catholic church illustrate the city's and the bath's history, and this church hosted II. Pope John Paul during his time as archbishop of Krakow. The Bocskai Museum is also interesting with its folk art collection.
The townspeople's high priority is to provide tourists and bath visitors with quality programs and events year-round. The tourist season is packed with events ranging form Hajdúszoboszlói Nyár (Summer in Hajdúszoboszló), the Hajdúszoboszlói Lovas Napok (Hajdúszoboszló Horse Days) all the way to the bath galas.
