You may have some nice time if you visit the small spa of Hatvan. One found the thermal water here while boring for hydro-carbon in this land in the 60s. Soon the first bathing facilities were built. Nowadays there are four pools inside the complex, which include thermal pools, a swimming pool and a small pool for the children. The spa is situated in a nice park, where you take a rest after refreshing your self. The water contains sodium-hydrogen-carbonic, thus it is mostly recommended for those who have some kind of motor disease. As drinking cure it is recommended for those who have stomach problems.

History

According to the finds that archeologists found here, this land was inhabited since the Neolithic Ages. After that time they found some finds which indicate that there must have been some kind of fortress here during the Roman Ages. It was maybe because they had recognized too, that this is a well situated land, which can bee easily defended.


In the early Middle Ages, it became royal estate. The first castle was built in the 13C. The important route, known as “the Kings’ pass”, run through the town. This was an important trade and military rout which connected the eastern part of the country with the capital.

History

Due to its situation, this land was defeated time after time by foreign troops. First the Tatars came, than the Turks, after the Habsburgs. During these defeats the castle became totally destroyed. There are even no ruins to see anymore. We only know how the castle looked like from some descriptions.


In the 19C the town didn’t developed for a while. It had changed in the second half of the century, when the railway was laid down, and a sugar-factory was built. The next years became the years of modernizations. A weir was built, electrification was made, a new mill and a hospital were built etc.


After the Second World War, Hatvan had stopped to develop again. This has changed only after the 70s.

Place of interest


After refreshing your self I the spa, you should take a walk around the town, because there are some interesting sights around.
