Debrecen, the largest city of Eastern Hungary is not only home to the second busiest airport of the country, welcoming flights from all over Europe, but is also one of the religious and educational centres of Hungary.

Oh, and there's also a tropical spa in the greenest part of Debrecen where you can recuperate and take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Medical School of the University of Debrecen was the first campus medical school in Central Europe. The Medical School now has 22 departments of basic sciences and 25 clinical departments specializing in various fields, many of these fields can boast about world-class achievements. Some malignant blood disorders can now be cured by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation; a new, innovative method allows for the cure of diseases caused by high blood pressure that are unresponsive to medication; the renewed Cornea Bank allows for keratoplasty (corneal transplantation) procedures of the highest standard at the Ophthalmology Clinic; a new biological therapy helps with the treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases and psoriasis. The Medical School of the University of Debrecen is accredited by many international medical associations, and the language of education is Hungarian and English, thus it's not surprising that the number of international students is increasing every year.

If instead of specialized treatments recreation in a fun environment is what you're after, the Aquaticum Thermal Baths won't disappoint.  In the heart of the Great Forest of Debrecen, the spa complex features three medicinal water pools of different temperatures, a swimming pool, a contrast bath and steam chambers in a domed pool hall. In addition, there's an all-year-round open-air pool with medicinal waters. Underwater exercises and weight bath treatments are available in two separate, specifically structured pools. And where is the fun in that? In the Mediterranean Pleasure Baths! Under a massive glass dome there is an abundance of tropical plants and a water paradise full of adventures. Baby pools and water choppers, wave pools and Thai massage – you'll love the treats and indulgences Hungary's second largest city has in store for you.
