Video: Spa Town Hévíz Ranks 12th In European Destinations Of Excellence
The Hungarian spa town of Hévíz, home to Europe’s largest thermal lake, has been voted twelfth best place to visit in this year’s European Destinations of Excellence (EDEN) ranking, the local council said.

Hévíz made the list, ahead of places such as Prague and Madrid, based on a count of more than 600,000 votes submitted between January 15 and February 5.

In addition to Hungarians, Hévíz enjoyed the support of many German, British, Norwegian, Austrian, Russian and Asian travellers, showing the town has made a place for itself among global tourism destinations, the council said.

Making the EDEN list generally boosts tourism activity at destinations by 15 percent, it added.
