Egerszalók, a bath heaven
Egerszalók is an outstanding health resort, and it is not surprising since according to balneological measurements the water is 18.000-20.000 years old. The first well was drilled in 1961 while searching for crude oil and natural gas, but instead of oil 65 C thermal water was found. The first basin was built in 1969, the second well was drilled in 1987 from which 68 C thermal water burst up from 426 m below.
In Egerszalók and its surroundings seven different baths have been built on this wonderful water rich in minerals.
