Zalakaros

Welcome to Zalakaros, to one of the smallest and maybe the most beautiful village of Hungary. The popularity of the 750 years old town is owing to the thermal spring found by mistake, when drilling for oil, in 1962. The 96 C water comes from 2000 m and it contains various minerals and this is what makes Zalakaros known all over the world.

Since the opening ceremony of the spa in 1965 the village is undergoing a constant development which greatest efforts date back to the latest ten years. The spa is open all year round and offers new attractions almost every year. Besides traditional medical baths the first indoor and outdoor experience pool complex in the country has been built here with wellness and fitness facilities, surf bath and water slides. Serving the guests looking for medical treatment has been an important issue during the works: a medical treatment center has been built and the renowned therapy department has also been renovated. Thanks to the developments Gránit Spa has become one of the greatest spas in Hungary; water surfaces more than 5000 m2 from which about 1500 m2 are covered are at the service of the guests.

Due to all innovation the spa has become the “meeting point of generations”: small children as well as grandparents enjoy the experience of water; the center of wellness provides medical treatment and fun at the same time for people of all age.

However, the medical and experience spa is not the only reason to visit Zalakaros. The unique nature of the Kis-Balaton and the Balaton National Park, the romantic vineyards, open woodlands, gently and narrow valleys and foothills provide an unforgettable experience to all visitors. By foot or on two wheels everyone finds the best way to chill out.

Zalakaros welcomes the guests not just with healing water but also with gastronomic experiences. The bath complex and the city offer a great variety of restaurants, cafes, confectionaries and vineyards. True Hungarian hospitality meets European cuisine and Hungarianspecialties in the clean, romantic terraces and beautiful restaurants.
