Guest nights at tourism accommodations in Hungarian spa towns rose close to 10% in November from the same month a year earlier, the Hungarian Tourism Agency said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

Figures from the National Tourism Data Service Center show guest nights at accommodations in Hajdúszoboszló and Egerszalók, in the east of the country, rose 22% and 19%, respectively. Seven spa towns accounted for 56% of guest nights in Hungary, excluding the capital, during the month.

The most popular spa town in November was Hévíz, home to Europe's largest thermal lake. The spa there drew large numbers of visitors from Austria, Germany, and Czechia. Hajdúszoboszló was the most popular spa among domestic travelers.

Government funding has supported upgrades in 14 spa towns around the country in recent years, including projects in Bük, Gyula, Hévíz, Zalakaros, Hajdúszoboszló and Sárvár.
