Orosháza and Gyopárosfürdő are ideal destinations for a drive holiday as they offer both conditions that are important for visitors arriving by car: safe garages and high mobility in this way.

What is more cars are not only safe, but parking or guards is free as all accommodation places offer free, guarded parking places. On top of that parking is free all over the town. Right at the entrance of the spa parking is payable, but a few hundred meters further free and safe parking places are provided for visitors.

As the 50-60 km area of Orosháza offers some sights worth seeing, going by car is the most convenient way for discovering them during one day trips. We come across attractive tourist sights any direction we go. Let’s start with the well known town Szeged situated to the south from Orhosháza. Besides its famous cultural and architectural values, the performances in the open-air theatre provide unforgettable experiences for visitors. One of the best zoos in the country is the Szeged wildlife park. As for gastronomy: the local fish soup is a must try.

If we start on the north, we will get to Szarvas. It is famous for its Arboretum, water stage and other heritages. We can also watch the Memorial raised for the geometrical centre of the territory of the historical Hungary, existed before the Treaty of Trianon. Gourmets will find Szarvas an ideal destination as the restaurants follow the traditions of both Hungarian and Slovak cuisine.

If we take it to the east we reach two towns: Békéscsabára and Gyulára. Both towns are attractive as the renovated downtown of Békéscsaba has a European atmosphere, the Jókai Theatre offers great performances, and here is the only cinema of the county, which reaches the level of other cinemas in the country. One thing we should not forget: this is the land of sausages, it is worth the effort finding the best resources of home made sausages.

Gyula does not need any introduction as its castle and spa is worldwide famous, not to mention Dürer and Erkel, whose memories are preserved in a professional way in this town.
