Hajdúszoboszló – Aquapark

In October 1925 a special, 73 °C thermal water welled out from 1091-metre depth due to the hydrocarbon research of the geologist Ferenc Pávai Vajna and made Hajdúszoboszló a bath town. The silky brown hot water flushed the pits around Hajdúszoboszló and citizens immediately seized the water; they’ve started to bath and wash in it. It was noticed soon that the water makes injuries heal faster and rheumatic pain relieves. Two years later the first so called ‘gravel bath’ was opened. Due to the tourism boost the bath of Hajdúszoboszló had to be enlarged and modernized. During the economical-political transformations in 1991 the thermal bath’s organization was transformed to a joint stock company by the local government, which is still the majority shareholder of it. In the middle of the ‘90s mineral water bottling was started in Hajdúszoboszló. In 1998 at Christmastime a new and modern building of the thermal bath was finished. The ever first water amusement park of Hungary, the Aquapark was established in Hajdúszoboszló granted by Phare.

By favor of Széchenyi plan an investment of 2.5 billion HUF the thermal bath was extensively renewed, the Aquapark was enlarged and new treatment rooms were developed in the bath building’s upper floor.

Nowadays everyone can enjoy the beneficial effects of thermal water who would like to have fun, relax or recover.
