Hévíz -just 8 km on highway- is an old and very famous spa town located near Lake Hévíz, the world's second-largest thermal lake. It provides facilities for visitors seeking to use the medicinal waters of the lake, including hotels, parks, sports, entertainment and culture.
In Hévíz, medicinal spa tourism goes back over 200 years. The town is famous for its manicured parks, safety, hospitality and year-round cultural activities. One of the biggest attractions is the 38 m deep Lake Hévíz. With its 44000 sq m (11 acres)surface is claimed to be the world's second largest thermal lake and also the largest biologically active natural medicinal lake, thanks to its rich mineral and unique micro-algae content which helps in the treatment and curing of rheumatic and locomotive problems.
The temperature of the lake surface reaches 37-38 °C and it does not go below 24-26 °C even in winter, which makes it suitable for bathing all the year round. Its temperature is the result of the cold and warm springs water gushing from the depth of the earth, which get mixed in the spring cave at a rate of 410 liters of water per second. Due to this abundance, the whole amount of water in the lake gets replenished every three days.
Lake Balaton
Lake Balaton is the biggest lake in Central Europe and one of the major tourist destinations in the country, just 20 minutes from Zalacsány. The lake has shallow waters and you can walk for tens of meters before you can't stand anymore. The advantage is that the water is relatively warm, even already in Spring. The surroundings are hilly with magnificent vineyards and there are some great places and wine cellars to explore. The western shores are less populated and less crowded. You also can go on sailboat or a Chesna flight above the lake, which is great fun as well.
Zalacsány can be reached by car, just 28km from M1 motorway, by bus from Budapest, and by airplane from Hévíz-Balaton International Airport (15km) with direct flights to Germany, Russia and Baltic states. (free transfer can be arranged with the owner)
