The real gem of Egerszalók (pron. eh-ger-sah-lok) is the thermal bath complex. Here the hot waters from two ancient thermal springs have been flowing out of the side of a hill for ages, leaving behind beautiful mineral formations, called the ‘Salt hill', that cascade down the hill like a frozen waterfall. The Salt hill of Egerszalók is unique in Europe.
The water of Egerszalók is qualified as medical thermal water in 1992. It is calcium, magnesium, hydrogen-carbonate mineral water with significant sulphur content. Good for degenerative musculoskeletal disorders, back and lower back pain, rehabilitation after orthopedic and spinal surgery, psoriasis, eczema, and inflammatory gynecological diseases.
