European Quartet One Melody

Debrecen can claim to hold several records. The symbol of the city, the Great Calvinist Church, with 3,000 seats, is the largest Calvinist church in the country. And the long established Hotel Aranybika is the oldest working hotel in the country. The thermal water of the Nagyerdő Medicinal Bath is used for the treatment of chronic arthritis, rheumatism, worn cartilage, gynaecological disorders, orthopaedic deformations and neuralgia.

Hajdúszoboszló has been the “Mecca for Rheumatics” for 75 years, since when the 75 °C thermal waters springing up from a depth of 1,100m, have been used for healing at the popular holiday resort of the Great Plain. Two or three treatments per week in the Medicinal Bath result in an improvement in chronic rheumatic, gynaecological, dermatological and internal disorders. The microclimate of the bath is given by the iodine-saline vapour ascending from the 10,000m² water surface. This is a wonderfully attractive place, not only for those looking for improvement in their health, but also for holiday makers and all who enjoy adventure pools. The area enjoys, on average, around 2,000 hours of sunshine annually.
Smooth water, huge bays, backwaters and islands, rich fish and wild stock –welcome to Lake Tisza. Located in the middle of the Great Plain, its territory is the second largest surface of water in the country a 127km². The shallow water areas, which warm up easily, are suitable for bathing, while the deeper parts are ideal for water sports. Besides sailing, water skiing and surfing, you can speed around by power-boat and jet-ski as well.
The prairies billow like a sea,” wrote the great Hungarian poet, Sándor Petőfi, who was a lover of the Hungarian Puszta and the river Tisza. The river gives life to the sandy country and fish for the inimitably delicious fish soup made here. The number of sunshine hours is the highest in the country and the abundantly flowing thermal water helps people who wish to recuperate.
