Szeged's Ice Skating Rink, located next to the Pick Salami factory, is only open from late September to April.
An adult ticket costs 850 HUF (around £2.20) for 2 Hours and a child ticket (child aged between 4 and 14), pensioner ticket and student ticket (student under 26 years old) cost 700 HUF (under £2). You can bring your own roller skates or hire them for 1,000 HUF (under £3).
Szeged Parapark WebsiteParapark is like the Crystal Maze UK TV programme whereby you have 60 Minutes to get out of the park, solving puzzles along the way.
You must be in a group of 2-5 People to solve the puzzles - 2 people cost 6,990 Ft (around £19.74). Tünde's son and Hungarian friends went here and said it was great fun.
This web page has been created primarily with the sporty, leisure active, adventurous person in mind while mentioning relaxing recreations too. It highlights certain, free and pay-for, INDOOR leisure activities you can try/enjoy in and around Szeged such as Swimming, Fitness/Gym, Roller Skating, Massage, Billiards and Skydiving.

If you need somewhere to take the kids/family for the whole day and love swimming, water slides, heated pools and saunas you need to visit the Napfényfürdõ Aquapolis Szeged WebsiteNapfényfürdõ Aquapolis water park. It has plenty of indoor and outdoor water slides and swimming pools for all age groups, massage/sauna areas, food areas, a baby crèche and special/seasonal offers.
The indoor water slides can send you around the twist!
Tünde, her children and me have been there plenty of times now and we have enjoyed every visit. Read More InformationRead More / View The Photos...
Szegi Fitness is quite a big gymnasium that caters for both men and women with pure weights, running machines, stair-masters, push/pull/lift weight machines, aerobics classes and personal trainers among other things. There equipment is very professional and modern with many different types of push, pull and lift weight machines for most, if not all, muscles.
A one-day pass, which costs 1,000 HUF (£2.66), entitles you to stay in the gym all day. Highly recommended if you need to try out the gym and its equipment first. There is no induction, just pay and use the gym. Personal trainers are on hand to make sure you know how to use the machines properly - Just ask them if you need help. There is also a monthly pass that costs 7,500 HUF (around £20).
Friendly Staff/Trainers - Many Machines - Affordable Prices - Open Long Hours
The good thing about this gym is there are plenty of weights and machines and nobody I saw was intimidating or hogging the machines. Quite the opposite. I made friends quite easily. If you prefer to weight train at home, you can buy weights from Decathlon.
The National Lottery game in Hungary is called Lotto 5/90 - You pick five numbers out of a possible ninety for your chance to win millions of forints. Simply visit a Lottozó Shop, put five Xs on the 5/90 paper, take it to the counter and pay 250 HUF (around 66p).
Pick 5 numbers out of 90 numbers for your chance to win millions.....of Forints!
There is also a Joker tick box if you want to play the separate joker game whereby you need to match the joker balls with your normal lotto balls; similar to the bonus balls in the Euromillion and UK Lottery games.
You can check if you have won the Saturday draw by visiting the Official Hungarian Lottery WebsiteOfficial Hungarian Lottery Website.

This place is great for those needing personal gym equipment in their home, such as dumbbells and weights. It is where I bought my set of 10KG Dumbbells, sold in a nice hard plastic carry case, for 11,800 HUF (£31.46). It worked out cheaper to get the set rather than individual weights, but obviously if you need individual weights.....
Running machines, weight benches, stair masters, skipping ropes and sports clothing are among the items you can buy in-store. They do a range of mountain bikes too.
If you are the sort of person who enjoys a professional relaxing massage, deep tissue massage or water massage after a hard cycle/run or long walk for example, you could visit a number of places in Szeged (such as the massage areas within the Napfényfürdõ Aquapolis water park or local beauty spas found in and around the city centre) but here I will recommend Massziroz-Lak (Massage House); located 5 Minutes from the Árkad Centre.
At Massziroz-Lak everything is very professional with exceptionally clean, beautifully lit, homely (not clinical looking) rooms. A one hour aromatherapy massage currently costs 3,290 HUF (£8.77). When I had an aromatherapy massage, of medium strength (not too deep tissue), it took the aches and pains away from my legs and back. Highly recommended.
In Szeged you can get a professional massage for 3,290 HUF (£8.77)
Polite Notice - Walk-In/Appointment Massage Salons in Hungary do NOT provide "Extra Services", unlike in the London (UK) where "Extra Services" are 'the norm'. In Szeged they are professional and therefore use towels to cover you up and never massage the private parts of your body.
