The spa of Gy?r (Rába-Quelle Fürd?) is a comfortable place where you can refresh your self after traveling around the country. It has a great location, which gives a special atmosphere to the spa. It is situated on the island where River Danube meets River Rába, thus you may see the old town from here. The first bathing facilities were built in the 30s. This was than rebuilt time after time. Nowadays there is a great aqua park with water-slides, thermal pools and a special pool for the babies. Besides these different kinds of therapeutic and wellness treatments are also available like massages, medical advice, mud-pack, sauna etc.


The water contains alkali-hydrogen-carbonic, iodide and chloride, thus it is mostly recommended for those who have some kind of motor disease. As drinking cure it is good against caries and ulatrophy.


In Roman Ages, Gy?r was an important town with a fortress. Its former name was Arrabona. During the Great Migrations Hunish, German and than Avar tribes settled here for a period of time. After the Hungarian conquest some Kabar tribes settled here, whose main task was to protect the western border. In the 11C Stephan I founded an episcopacy in Gy?r.

During the 11-12C the importance of the town grew because of some privileges, like duty concessions, the transit trade and for holding great markets. In the 13C, because the inhabitants of Gy?r fought bravely against the Czech troops, Stephan V. gave some further privileges. The citizens of the town became free people and had to pay no taxes for landowners.

During the 14-15C the citizens kept on fighting for their rights with the landowner of the town, the bishop. After, they had lost their privileged status. When the Turks invaded Hungary, the castle was rebuilt and strengthened. The town was under Turksh rule from 1594-98.

During the 17-19C almost every important historical event of Hungary left something behind in the town. Even Napoleon went through Gy?r, and some other important battles were fight here or in the surrounding land.

After the railway was laid down, the economy of the town had changed, and industry became more and more important. Although, in the 20C, after Trianon, it became borderland, in contradiction to other border towns, Gy?r developed and remained an important industrial, trade, administrative and cultural center.
