You may have a nice time if you visit the rebuilt spa of Kalocsa


The first bathing facilities were built in the 20s, but were covered with earth after the Second World War. One rebuilt only a swimming pool in the 80s. Finally, in 2002, the water of Kalocsa became officially healing water and a new spa was built. Csajda Spa is a comfortable, modern spa, situated in a well-kept park.


The water contains sodium-chloride, iodide and bromide, thus it is mostly recommended for those who have some kind of motor disease.


Inside the complex there are thermal pools, swimming pool and small pool for the children. Besides bathing, different kinds of treatments are available like massages, sauna, or therapeutic gymnastics.

History

According to the finds that archeologists found here, this land was inhabited by the Stone Ages.


The first source which mentions the name of Kalocsa dates back to the 11C. Stephan I established an archbishopric center here. The town developed and flourished during the Middle Ages. When the Turks invaded Hungary in the 16C, the town became almost deserted after the repeating attacks. By the end of the 17C it was only a small village. First the archbishop came back, and new settlers came to Kalocsa. Than the new town government was established as well. Though the town still remains an agricultural town, its cultural life flourished in the 19C.


The 20C was hard time for the town. After the Second World War, during the communist era it was waste away because of being a sacred place. Military barracks were built by the borders of the town, its former cultural and ecclesiastical offices, schools were closed and destroyed.


After some changes in the 60s, Kalocsa could develop again, and became the center of the famous Hungarian Paprika. New homes were built, and food industry flourished. After the democratic changes in Hungary, the town got its former status back.
