The historic spa entered the top 7 wellness places ont he continent.
Budapest’s Széchenyi spa joined the likes of Iceland’s famed Blue Lagoon as well as England’s Thermae
Bath Spa amongst the best places to unwind and relax – writes enbudapestem.hu.
According to the rankings, the number one spot was claimed by Greece’s Palia Kameni hot springs,
located on an island in the Aegean Sea, off the coast of Santorini. It is a picturesque location that is hard
to get to: the springs can only be accessed via boat and swimmers can only splash between the waves
from the anchored vessel.
Iceland’s famous Blue Lagoon took second place. With its recognizable blue waters it is considered to be
one of Iceland’s most scenic locations.
The list has been especially kind to Hungarian spas, as next to the Széchenyi spa, that celebrates the
110th anniversary of its opening, the largest swimmable thermal lake of the world, Lake Hévíz also
added to the list compiled by the British tabloid The Mirror.
Other locations include the above mentioned British Bath, that saw its first spa-goers thousands of years
ago. Discovered almost 3 millenia ago, Bath was visited by ancient Saxons and Celts as well.
Luxury French wellness location Bains De Dorres also made the list, along with the swiss high end spa
7132 Therme Vals, renowned for its spectacular views.
