Hévíz is a Hungarian town not far from lake Balaton, centered around lake Hévíz, the world’s second-largest thermal lake.
This lake receives 40°C hot water from a underground spring, which results in a lake water temperature at the surface of 24°C in winter and up to 37°C in summer. The Hévíz lake never freezes and it is in fact possible to swim in it in the winter.
Around the lake a spa has been set up with changing rooms, showers, saunas and a multitude of services. This spa has triggered the growth of the city of Hévíz from a small village to a large tourist centre.
Hévíz is a pleasant resort city with pedestrian areas, shops, restaurants and green areas. It has no natural or historic sights and people come here essentially only to use the Hévíz spa.
