The Flexum thermal spa, which offers several pools with different types of thermal and mineral waters, both indoors and outdoors, is by far the best thing in the city. The place could use a little modernization, but all in all, for some 10 euros a day, you can enjoy a wide variety of thermal waters. Especially in winter, when you can spend time in hot water outside while it is snowing, the atmosphere is quite nice.
The old town, with its retro air reminiscent of the late 19th century, has an undeniable charm, aided by the excellent restaurants. Our favorite is the Gaben Wine Club (Borclub), which offers an excellent selection of fine wines, Hungarian and foreign, and tasty local specialties, like foie gras, all served by very nice and stylish staff. Also notable, mainly for its pleasant American-style interior, is the Ambrozia restaurant, which serves a mean steak tartare. For those who prefer a more lively atmosphere, there is an Irish Pub, which serves a wide variety of international beers. All these nice places are located within an area of less than 100 meters. To add to the special feeling, during the cold days of winter, the Lajta creek is emanating steam, from the thermal springs underground. The city is located just 16 km from the Slovak border and 11 km from the Austrian border.
