Visitors to the Hungary Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai will be able to
immerse themselves in a relaxing, healing and rehabilitative experience as the
country spotlights its unique, mineral-rich thermal springs.
Known as the ‘Land of Waters’, Hungary is located in the Carpathian Basin
where the earth’s crust is particularly thin, and is brimming with thermal hot
springs – more than 1,300 in total and 123 in the capital Budapest alone.
The Hungary Pavilion, under the theme ‘Aqua Roots of Hungary’, will shed
light on the healing power of water and balneotherapy – the ancient treatment
of ailments or disease by bathing in thermal mineral waters.
In an interactive exhibition that reveals the origins of Hungary’s
thermal springs, visitors will soak up the country’s wellness and spa culture –
and how it is buoying its country’s health tourism industry – and discover the
medical applications of balneotherapy in treating all sorts of health
conditions, including burnout and stress.
Representatives from Hungary participated in Health and Wellness Week,
the latest pre-Expo themed week that brought together International
Participants and members of the Expo family to discuss how we can work together
to create a healthier, happier, global society, while also living in balance
with our natural world.
