Vasvári Fürdő

9800- Vasvár
Járdányi utca



You may refresh your self in a nice place if you visit the spa of Vasvár. The spa is situated in a well-kept park. Inside the complex there are one swimming pool and one small pool for the children.


Vasvár got its name from the small iron-smelting-works around the village in the early Middle Ages. “Vas” means “iron” in Hungary. The first source which mentioned the name of Vasvár dates back to the 12C. It was before a center of the Church and also a center of the district. The Dominican monks were settled here by Béla IV in the 13C. In the 16C it was a county district. During Turkish times the county district became Szomabthely because Vasvár was too close to the attacks, and it is still is the county district.

Place of interest

After refreshing your self in the spa you should take a walk in the town.

The old catholic church was built in the 13C. In the 15C it was rebuilt in gothic style and than again it was rebuilt, so it also has baroque motives.

Nearby is the famous place of pilgrimage Szentkút. There was a blind man who washed his face in the water of the spring here and became seeing again. One built a nice chapel here in memory of this miracle. Monks lived here before in the surrounding mountains.

If you like to know more about the history of Vasvár you should visit the displays in the former Dominican monastery.

Besides these the surrounding land is rich in natural beauties where you can take some nice excursions. There are also some great places for angling by the side of the lake in the town.

Vasvár has a lively cultural life with festivals, temporary exhibitions, so try to get information about these before traveling.
