Nyiregyháza



 

Located in the eastern half of Hungary on the North Great Plain, close to the Ukrainian and Romanian borders, Nyiregyháza is the seat of Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County.

The city’s oldest, and most important, historic building is the Late-Baroque style Lutheran Church dating from 1784, with its 50m high tower from which a carillon of twelve bells can be heard. It is also worth mentioning the Eclectic style Town-Hall, the County-Hall and the Orthodox Synagogue – all to be found in the city-centre.

Its most popular tourist attraction is the “Sóstófürdő” (Salt-Lake Baths) recreation area – located some 4km north of the city; it was declared a health-resort in 1927.

Besides its open-air canoeing and swimming facilities it also has a spa, the 50˚C thermal waters of which are rich in chlorides, carbonates, iodides and bromides which make it suitable for treating tracheal, locomotor and gynaecological disorders.

Nearby to the Baths, the typical architectural styles and folklore of the region’s different areas can be viewed at an open-air village-museum. The country’s largest animal-park can also be found here.
