Health Tourism Rising in Hungary
As the entire world searches for nature-based and wellness services due to the impact of Covid-19, Hungary is no exception. The people of Hungary are attracted to spas, thermal waters, and forest bathing programs. Demand for these services had been increasing even before the pandemic, but Covid-19 pushed it further.
New Trends and Demographics
People can no longer cope with the rigors of working from home, leading to poor posture and a lack of physical activity. Consequently, there is a marked increase in the number of young people aged 17-18 seeking solutions to back pain and headaches. Though there is a generation gap in spa culture, once young people realize the healing benefits of thermal baths, and how they work, they're excited about this old tradition.
Sustainable Use of thermal waters
Thermal waters have also become objects of sustainability for energy use. Using thermal waters as sources of green energy is a trend that has been available for years now. It's essential to exploit green energy sources, especially given the growing environmental concerns.
Nature-based tourism, especially taking advantage of thermal waters, has always been a significant part of the Hungarian culture, and Covid-19 has increased its demand. Utilizing thermal waters as green energy sources also counts towards sustainable development, making them a valuable resource both culturally and environmentally.
