|Riverside bathing and the Dráva Promenade
The future of Barcs is based on those treasures which greet our gaze wherever we look and, central to them, on the River Dráva. The quayside here was planned with the advice of round-the-world sailor Nándor Fa. One may walk along the promenade from the quay as far as the bathing area, using a beautiful footbridge to enable one's crossing of the Rinya Stream. The bathing area has been up-dated as a part of the Dráva Project, offering bathing possibilities in natural surroundings, and parking facilities. After a refreshing swim we may follow the plane and lime tree-lined route to the town centre, where the Dráva Museum offers an insight into the town's local history, stretching back seven thousand years. Today canoes and tour boats plough the river, whilst the town boast's a wonderful covered swimming pool and medicinal bath. Currently bed and breakfast accommodation is available, but a four-star hotel is also to be built shortly. The local fish and the game of the forests are famed afar, whilst at Drávaszentes, a part of the town, the Danube-Dráva National Park runs a unique study centre.
