The sights of Hévíz in one place: check them out if you want to do more than just bathe!


Sights of Hévíz: more than just a spa town

Hévíz, the town of Lake Bath, is famous not only for its medicinal water, but also for its cultural and historical sights. The town offers experiences not only for bathing enthusiasts, but also for those who want to explore the sights of the area. From the sculpture park dedicated to the memory of Zsigmond Móricz, Mihály Csokonai Vitéz and Dániel Berzsenyi, through the church of the Árpád era to modern architecture, Hévíz boasts an extremely rich history and cultural values.

The meeting of the Hévíz Sculpture Park and literature

Near the Lake Bath lies the Hévíz Sculpture Park, where the memory of three great Hungarian writers, Zsigmond Móricz, Mihály Csokonai Vitéz and Dániel Berzsenyi is preserved. These writers, who loved the countryside, often walked here, rested with a glass of wine or enjoyed the beneficial effects of the thermal water of Hévíz. 

Benches where you can sit next to statues of writers are places where visitors can calmly read a book or just enjoy the surroundings. The park aims to provide a little peace and quiet for those who want to immerse themselves in the harmony of literature and nature and, of course, pay tribute to our great writers.

The Árpád-era church of Hévíz

In Hévíz there is a special church, the church from the Árpád period, which has been standing in the Egregy district for more than 700 years. It's not just an old building, it's an opportunity to travel back in time – as soon as you enter, you immediately feel the magic of the past, as if you were flying back to the Middle Ages. And by walking within the walls of the temple, you can experience what life was like at that time.

Egregy is also the site of another exciting landmark. Here you can find the tomb of the Roman soldier, or as many know it, the late Roman brick tomb. Discovered during earthworks in 1925, the tomb hides special treasures. The artifacts found here date back to the era of Roman Emperor Constantine II and reflect a defining period of the Roman Empire. These special finds can be seen today in the Balaton Museum in Keszthely, faithfully preserving a slice of Roman life.

Villa Rustica brings back to us the Hévíz of the last century

Hévíz also has more interesting things for history fans. Villa Rustica, an early imperial Roman villa, came to light during excavations in the 1930s. This structure is a real treasure trove for those interested in the past, presenting the world of Roman buildings with rich decoration. Villa Rustica brings us vivid moments from past centuries and takes us to a time when the artistic sophistication of Roman architecture shone.

In the area there is another interesting discovery - a brick kiln. This small structure offers further insight into the architectural practices of ancient times. The furnace is not only a simple structure, but a time capsule that brings us the days when bricks were made by hand. Small details like these show how towns and villages were built and help us better understand the crafts that formed the basis of architecture.

If you are in Hévíz, be sure to visit Liget Royal Restaurant. The restaurant isn't intrusively elegant, it's more like you've stepped into a peaceful home. You can enjoy the flavours while relaxing in the silence of the environment. The Liget Royal Restaurant is not a loud place, but rather a friendly nook where you can forget the noise of everyday life and relax and have a delicious snack.
