Gyula is called righteously a city of spas, famous health-resort by the public opinion for 50 years. Thanks to the guests, holiday-makers visiting Gyula, today our city is a pearl of the Hungarian health tourism.
The main attraction of our city having a population of 35,000 is the Castle Bath taking pride in 1 000 000 well-contented guests per year. The heart of the city providing primarily the appeal of Gyula is formed by the ancient monument group of the mediaeval Castle and the spa connecting to it organically. The minister of health declared the 72 oC water of the Castle Bath, coming from the deepness of 2004 m to be medicated water in 1969, the bath to be spa in 1971 and the environment of the spa to be health-resort in 1985.
