The Water Resort and Sports swimming Complex of Hódmezővásárhely

The tradition of bath life in Vásárhely dates back to 80 years– the bath was opened in the centre of the town on July 14th, 1929.  The Török Sándor Strandfürdő és Gyarmati Dezső Sportuszoda is located in a huge, park-like setting. A number of outdoor thermal pools in an easily accessible, quiet environment comfort those with rheumatologic diseases.

The mineral content of the Hódmezővásárhely bath’s low hardness water, which is rich in alkali hydrogen carbonate and driven from 2,200 meters below,  is 2190.525 mg/l. This healing water is the basis of the more than 75 years long bath tradition of the town. The therapy centre of the bath utilizes not only the thermal and chemical properties of the water, but offers to the guests aqua fitness, underwater jet treatment and underwater massage in order to make the medical and thermal water an effective resource of local medical therapy and rehabilitation. The medical water is excellent for bath cures, especially in the case of inflammatory and degenerative musculoskeletal diseases (i.e. wear and tear) and in the treatment of the spine and peripheral joints (for example knees and hips).

The park welcomes visitors with eight pools, with a combined water surface of 2,905 m2, as well as with various other sport and entertainment opportunities. The bath is operated together with the modern competition pool suitable for organizing international competitions and welcomes guests looking for sports activities with a variety of services.

The services offered by the bath are continuously expanding with new recreational and relaxation opportunities. For instance, from September 2013 a salt therapy hall is offered for the guests. The salt hall contains a thousand salt bricks (weighing altogether 5 tons) from Parajd (a little town located in Transylvania famous for its saline) and nearly 500 kg of salt sand. The healing power of the airborne crystal salt is the result of the vapour absorbing the positive ions and thus cleaning the air of the hall. Salt is a natural antihistamine, cleaning the lungs and the bronchia and promoting the loosening of bronchial and sinus deposits. The use of the salt hall is recommended not only in cases of respiratory diseases, but also in the treatment of allergic disorders, hay fever, sleep disorders or when the immune system is weak.
