In Egerszalok, you MUST visit the thermal baths. This is a very small town located in a wooded area, so wherever you choose to go, it will be quiet and relaxing. There are several different bath complexes here, and the one I went to was at the Saliris Resort. The Saliris Resort has a huge spa area. In front of the resort you can see the Salt Hill, a very hot thermal spring with limestone build-up. The only other areas where you can see a similar “hill” are Yellowstone National Park and Pamukkale. There are 17 pools in the resort including the main heated pool, which is half indoor and half outdoor. Other types of pools here include jacuzzis, cold pools, and children’s areas. The resort also has fitness equipment, Finnish and Russian-style saunas, diving pools, and a steam room. If you get hungry or thirsty after swimming, you can have traditional Hungarian dishes, cake, coffee, beer, mixed drinks, hamburgers, or ice cream. If you aren't staying at the hotel, you have the option of purchasing a full-day or 3-hour ticket. I would recommend sightseeing in Eger for most of the day, then at mid-to-late afternoon going to the spa for a couple hours and swimming.
They discovered the spring when drilled the rock in the sixties of 20th. MInerals from water settle down layer by layer and that is why the huge "flower" still grows. Its surface is hot and soft.
Around - pools, bistro, parking place etc.
6 kilometer south from Eger lies the little village Egerszalok. 2 km farther (road sign: "Hoforras") you can find an amusing phenomenon: warm-water springs and a huge quasi-stony creation, similar to an small iceberg or glacier. On the spot parking place, some stalls and sellers, three tiny seating pools (one for naturists) and the signed rout around the spring and the salty hill.
Water temperature: 65 C or even more, in pools about 35-40.
People sit on the grass and inside the pools, some of them stand under streams of water falling from the hill through a system of tubes.
Entrance is paid, but not expensive 100, at most 200 forints per person.
Miscellaneous: When you visit the thermal baths in Egerszalok, make sure to bring your own towels, sandals, and bathrobe because if you don't, there is usually a fee to rent them. For example, the Saliris Resort charges about $5 to rent a towel and $7 for a bathrobe.
