Egerszalók (Hungary)

Egerszalók is a village with a population of almost 2,000 people situated between the Mátra and the Bükk mountains in the valley of the Laskó stream, just 5 km from Eger.


The appeal of the village lies in the natural beauty of the area, which offers tourists countless points of interest. Egerszalók’s main attraction is the thermal source springing from the depths of the earth in the south of the village and the salt hill created by the water flowing down the hillside.


The salt deposits from the 65-68 C◦ medicinal water extremely rich in minerals continuously build the scalloped, white formations, which are such an impressive sight. The calcium-magnesium bicarbonate medicinal water also containing sodium and metasilicic acid has been given one of the best ratings in the category of sulphurous medicinal waters. The water was classified as medicinal by the health ministry in 1992. Over the years the salt hill thanks to its unique characteristics has become the symbol and trademark of the local area. Similar natural formations can only be found in two other places in the world: in the Asian part of Turkey in Pamukkale, and in the Yosemite Park in the USA. In Europe it is unique.


The exclusive medicinal and wellness spa opened in Egerszalók on 13 July, 2007. The building is situated on the hillside with some of the pools lying in the beautiful valley.



The built ground area of the spa is 10,844 m2, and it has a capacity of some 1,000 people at any given time. With a total water surface of 1,900 m2 it boasts a total of 17 outdoor and indoor pools.
