Sárvár, the Europe-wide known spa town, the member of the Royal Spas of Europe, is regarded a medicinal site from now, the verification of which has been given to the mayor of the town by Ms Judit Paller, the Chief Medical Officer.

Apart from the certified, effective medicinal waters, the quality of the climatic environment is also above the average. The noise level is low and during the air pollution tests, data typical of and expected from highly protected areas were measured.
Both the protection and sustaning of the exceptional environmental factors, the proper infrastucture and the remarkable cultural heritage make Sárvár special, due to which the spa town has been certified as a medicinal site.
