Wellness travel means a process of refreshing the body and soul via natural health and other methods, so that we return to our normal lives revitalized and relaxed.
Wellness can also be described as the constant, conscious pursuit of living life to its fullest potential. In today's world, wellness has a secular and a religious meaning; secular wellness programs emphasize eating good food, living in a clean environment, doing regular physical exercises and developing religious faith.
The religious (traditional) wellness programs seek the way to bodily and mental health through spiritual methods.
The Romans had built the first baths of today's Budapest in the Roman military town of Aquincum. Later, during the 150-year long Turkish occupation of Hungary, the Turks have brought with themselves their love for the baths and built a series of steam-bathhouses, some of which are still in use today.
Special wellness facilities, such as specialized hotels and wellness centers have opened in Budapest in the past 18 years, offering a wide range of services in every category.
