The Venue

Swimming and public bathing has been part of the culture and history of Hódmezővásárhely for more than 80 years. The Török Sándor Bath and Gyarmati Dezső Swimming Pool lies on an extensive , landscaped area of more than 7 acres. In these easily accessible and tranquil surroundings an outdoor pool with thermal water offers relief for anyone suffering rheumatologic problems. Services, such as massage, jacuzzi, underwater massage, solarium, sauna, steam cabin, remedial swimming, remedial gymnastics and aqua-fitness are available. The bath operates alongside the Gyarmati Dezső Swimming Pool; the latter is suitable for organising international sport events.

Hódmezővásárhely and swimming is a unique combination. The city is a real headquarter of this sport: Dániel Gyurta and Éva Risztov usually choose our pools for their spring and summer training camps. Their preparations couldn’t have been any better, just think of their most outstanding results: the Olympic gold medals they won in London 2012. Chad le Clos, the South African Olympic champion swimmer also trained in Hódmezővásárhely for two weeks.

They feel themselves at home, since the swimming complex is a world-class venue featuring an Olympic size indoor pool with a newly built indoor warm-up pool and an outdoor 50m pool together with leisure pools.
