Thermal Bath of Bogács

Bogács is located at the foot of Mountain Bükk, in the valley of streams Hór and Szoros. The 76°C hot thermal water of the 480 meters deep wells was unearthed while conducting oil exploration and the village has rightly become famous for its bath offering a popular recreational site with a cosy atmosphere all year round.

During the summer season there are six pools with medical water on the territory of the bath welcoming guests. There is a giant Jacuzzi, an indoor pool, two children’s paddling pools (a children’s pool and a water playground), an infinity pool and a so-called Jurta pool (named after its shape since it looks like a yurt, which is a portable, bent dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia). During off-season, when the weather is getting cooler, one indoor and three outdoor pools with medical water are still in operation. Besides these pools, visitors are entertained by aqua Zumba, water gymnastics, festivals, various events, a multifunctional tartan field and night bathing.
