Introduction of Hajdú-Bihar’s public baths
Our country – and Hajdú-Bihar county – has extremely good conditions in terms of thermal and medicinal water resources, Hungary is one of the leading of the world. The reason for this is that the Earth’s crust under the country is thinner, which makes its geothermal properties extremely favorable. The increase in temperature to the center of the Earth is 45°C/km, compared to an average of 20-30 ° C/km. Thus, the average temperature measured at 500 m depth reaches 35-40 °C, at 1000 m it is 55-60 °C and at 2000 m it is approximately 100-110 °C. That is the reason why the temperature of our rich thermal waters is high, and it is the basis of which we have built our bath culture onto with great traditions and history. Due to their high mineral content, our thermal waters have a proven positive effect on many health problems.
In Hajdú-Bihar county there are several types of baths (medicinal baths, thermal baths, adventure baths) operating, most of them constantly, and a smaller part operates seasonally.
