Hajduszoboszlo

The second largest city in population in the region called Hajdúság, Hajdúszoboszló is located 140 miles from Budapest and 12 miles from Debrecen along Route 4. The Tartar invasion almost completely destroyed the city, and the area was resettled by the heyducks of István Bocskai in 1606. Its upswing commenced from the end of October 1925, when a drilling for oil brought up crystal-clear, 163 ◦F thermal water.


Hajduszoboszlo


Hajdúszoboszló is located 140 miles from Budapest and 12 miles from Debrecen along Route 4.

Referred to in written records as early as 1075, Szoboszló is mentioned in the establishing documents of an abbey in Garamszentbenedek. The Tartar invasion almost completely destroyed the city, and the area was resettled by the heyducks of István Bocskai in 1606. The name bears Slavic origin; meaning people belonging to someone called Szoboszló, or the ending -borough or -ville, referring to a place which bears someone's name. The Hunyadi family owned the city in the 15th century, when the church -- also serving as a fortress -- was built.

Being the second largest city in population in the region called Hajdúság, Hajdúszoboszló has always been committed and faithful to the Calvinist College in Debrecen, offering significant help to it.

Rooted in the opportunities laid in the railway, the city made an immense progression in the 1900s, but its upswing commenced from the end of October, 1925, when a drilling for oil brought up crystal-clear, 163 ◦F thermal water. Thanks to its wonderful ingredients, this brownish, weird-smelling water turned out to be a powerful healer for all kind of rheumatic problems. Realizing the unparalleled opportunities, the first spa was built within two years and was ranked as a medicinal bath in 1934. The nascent spa-tourism hastened a quick progression and the city was soon called the 'Mecca for Rheumatics', where guests are given various types of treatments.

The new Aqua Park was opened in 2000 and offers great recreation for all ages. In addition, other fabulous events wait for the visitors, such as the Horse-riding Days and the Spa-Balls.
