Relaxing walk in Sovata

Take self-guided walk in the old city - Sovata.  Following this path, you can stroll through the past and present sights of Sovata and get to know the resort's most impressive buildings. Duration: 1 hourSovata started to become famous as a balneo therapeutic health resort in the late 1800s when József Veress founded the salt springwater health center „Gera Bath” in the „Lower Sovata” on Géra Street. Nowadays, there is a Unitarian church on that site, but the existing salt springwater source reminds us of the former „Gera Bath”. Walking from the salty water well in the direction of the Bear Lake you reach the „Upper Sovata”, which has expanded over the years and is now a central part of the resort. Year after year Sovata became more famous because of the healing effects of its lakes, which attracted more and more visitors to the city. As a result, villas that evoke the atmosphere of the age were built, which can be seen along the way. The next notable point is the Well of Mary, which was named after actress Mari Jászai, who was a great fan of Sovata Resort. Not far from here you can see the Judges Villa, which was built for the treatment of the officials. The next two characteristic buildings are the Villa Pacsirta, also known as the Twin Villas, which, after their renovation faithfully reflect the architecture of that era.  Right next to these Villas is the former Greek Catholic wooden church, which now belongs to the Orthodox Church. Walking further from here we reach the heart of the resort, the Bear Lake, where once two iconic buildings were standing: the Mushrooms. Today only one of them, the Little Mushroom building is still standing.
