(3) marks: 2

6 kilometers north-west of Lake Balaton the biggest and the most famous resort of Hungary – Heviz - is situated. It is known primarily due to its lake with a curative effect.

Thermal lake Heviz which has an area of 4,4 hectares – is a unique one in Europe and one of the biggest warm-water lakes in the world. Healing springs from the depth of 38 meters gather in the underwater cave and make their way through the rock chimneys just like lava of an active volcano. Lake Heviz has this unique feature due to the two thermal springs with a temperature of 42 ° C and 38 ° C and a mineral one with a temperature of 17 ° C.

Radioactive therapeutic mud that covers the bottom of the lake possesses extraordinary curative effects. It consists of iodine, organic substances, estrogen. Swimming helps in the treatment of rheumatism, disruptions of the musculoskeletal system, vertebrates and gynecological diseases. Water improves the condition of skin and will be very helpful for people with psoriasis. Mouthwash using this water heals parodontosis.

Relaxation, soaring feeling in the water, floating flowers and green tree crowns calms the nervous system. The lake is not suitable for ordinary swimming. It is not recommended to stay in water more than 30 minutes, because the load on the hearth and circulatory system is increasing. There are several contraindications for people suffering from hypertension, asthma and for those who had myocardial infarction and operations for removing of the malignant tumor.

Annually Lake Heviz is visited by 300000 tourists from Europe, Asia and North America.

Spa resort and rheumatology and rehabilitation clinic, which is a huge therapeutic center offering a wide range of services to its visitors year round, are located on the territory of the lake.

Regardless of where you are staying on arrival in Heviz – a luxury hotel, summer cottage or a cozy apartment – high quality service and unforgettable nature won’t leave you indifferent.
