The medicinal spa of Harkány

Harkány spa, the healing water

The Harkány Medicinal Spa and Beach Company has a history of almost 200 years. The miraculous effect of the water, so legend goes, was first recognised by a Gyűd serf called János Pogány, who was “freed” from his terrible pains in the legs by the marshes of Harkány.
In the course of time Harkány became one of the Hungarian centres of the healing of locomotion diseases.

The spa of 13.5 hectares can receive up to 15,725 people a day. The spa is supplied with thermal water by four artesian wells, with “certified medicinal water” at a temperature of 62 °C

The Harkány water: the thermal wells produce high sulphide content chloride water containing sodium-, calcium- and hydrogen carbonate. The special feature of the water is provided by the carbonyl-sulphide content of the sulphuric compound, as this compound is absorbed much faster and has a much more immediate effect than other sulphates do. Due to all these features the water is suitable for the treatment of locomotion, rheumatic, dermatologic and gynaecological diseases.

The Harkány medicinal spa: it has a separate medicinal department of high quality and well-trained experts.
