Buk is situated in West-Hungary, in the flat area along the river Repce, at the foot of the Alps. The town is nearly 1000 years old and it was already famous in the time between the two world wars for having the first Hungarian sugar beet washing equipment and an underground conveyor belt linking various divisions. The inhabitants of Buk mainly had agricultural jobs but the discovery of the spa water having a unique mineral composition brought a significant change in their lives. This water came to the surface at the end of the 50s during some oil drillings.
The first spa water pool was built at the end of the sixties, until then the valuable water flowed in a ditch leading to the nearby river Répce. So-called 'ditch bathing' became popular among the inhabitants of the area. The thermal bath spectacularly extended during the next decades. Now it is a resort situated in a 13-hectar park fulfilling all needs, having 26 pools, and it became a bathing and wellness complex for those who seek relaxation and cure possibilities. Several places of accommodation, hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, lots of restaurants, pubs and shops were later built and now they provide a wide range of services. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to our village every year, both Hungarians and foreigners.
Buk has a heritage of monuments, e.g. the Szapary-castle, and the one-time mansion of Felsobuki Nagy Pal which building is still in use.
