Győr - matchless Oct 20, 2008
Győr, this mellow and colourful town is situated half way between Vienna and Budapest, and hosts a vast array of architectural, cultural and natural treasures.
The radial road network of the settlement connects Slovakia from the north, Austria from the west, Lake Balaton from the south and Budapest from the east to the town, the heart of Kisalföld ("The Small Plains"). The Győr-Pér airport opened not long ago makes the town accessible by air as well.
Győr, Hungary's second richest town in historic buildings outside Budapest has won Europe-award for the protection of the historic buildings, in acknowledgment of the reconstruction of the Baroque centre of the town. Churches, palaces, museums, characteristic corner-balconies and narrow lanes, all reminders of a historic past.
Győr is a town of festivals where friends of the arts and those who are eager for a high-quality relaxation can find attractive programmes all the year round.
This lively settlement with buoyant economic and commercial development offers splendid opportunities also for the representatives of business life to meet here.
Nature embraces and weaves through Győr along the rivers. The medicinal waters, the landscape and the cultural-historical treasures of the environment: the Szigetköz water-land and the Pannonhalma Hills allure people who want to have a rest or relaxation.
The Rába-Quelle Bath, the bath of meetings has been recently opened in the city of meetings. Through its services it creates additional excellent opportunities for an active holiday, for recovery or relaxation.
THE BATH OF MEETING
The bath is located on the headland at the junction of Mosoni-Danube and Rába rivers, where you can get a marvellous view of historic town center. The predecessor of the thermal bath is the seasonal open-air bath, which was built according to the plans of Alfréd Hajós in the year 1931 and is operated on a territory of almost 5 ha even today.
The waters of Győr were already mentioned in medieval chronicles, for their healing effect on a number of diseases. The water of a temperature of 67 C° and flushing out of three thermal wells of 2000 metres depth was qualified as medicinal water in 1978.
The up-to-date Rába Quelle Medicinal, Thermal and Pleasure Bath, satisfying the demand of our days, was opened to the public on 3rd October, 2003.
The bath of meetings offers appropriate services for each generation they may require.
