(Bloomberg) — Europe has broken temperature records already this year, with cities from Berlin to Warsaw recording their warmest ever start to the month.

Temperatures in the German capital reached 16C (60.8F) on New Year’s Day, a January record, national forecaster Deutscher Wetterdienst said on Twitter. In Poland’s biggest city, the mercury surpassed the previous peak by more than 5 degrees. The Czech Republic registered its warmest ever New Year’s Eve.

Europe’s winter heat wave has curbed demand for natural gas, easing pressure on the continent’s fragile energy systems and pushing prices down. In most areas the unseasonably warm weather is set to persist, quelling fears that the region could face rationing and blackouts amid reduced gas supply from Russia.

A total of 75.4 heating-degree days — a measure of the energy needed to heat homes — are expected next week in Europe, according to forecaster Maxar Technologies. That’s below the 10-year average of 79.9 days. European gas prices fell as much as 6.5% on Tuesday, a day after touching their lowest level since before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The return of stronger winds across parts of Europe is also relieving pressure on the market. Germany is expected to produce near-record wind power on Wednesday, according to a Bloomberg model.

The Warmest European Destinations to Visit in Winter

While there are a number of destinations around the world that are balmy all year round, these countries tend to require a long-haul flight. Because of this, it is far more convenient for us Brits to travel somewhere slightly closer for a warm getaway during these colder months. We’ve created a list of some of Europe’s most sought-after sunny locations that are ideal for the winter season. 

Gozo, Malta 

Malta is an incredibly popular destination amongst holidaymakers each year, which is partly due to its reputation as being an affordable destination to visit!

This stunning destination is well known for its historic appeal and features a number of ancient ruins that you can explore. The weather in Gozo can reach highs of 17°C, even in the particularly chilly months, which makes it an excellent choice for those seeking some sunshine.

Day 2

The emergence of a fishing settlement on the site of the present city dates back to the 12th century, it is known that a century later, Cascais, ruled from Sintra, supplied Lisbon with fish. Cascais gained independence from Sintra in 1364, which is considered the year the city was founded. The settlement and its surroundings were in the possession of the local lord, the most famous of which is Joao das Regras.

Among the architectural monuments of the city stands out the Church of Igreja da Assuncao (Assumption of the Virgin). There is a museum of the sea, in a picturesque city park there is a museum-library of Count Castro Guimarães, which stores a rich collection of books, paintings, sculptures, and tiles. On the cape in the southern part of the city there is an ancient fort (XVII century) and picturesque natural grottoes carved on the coast by the waves. A fish market is also open in the morning.

Day 3

The Troy Peninsula is located near the mouth of the Sado River. This is a favorite vacation spot for those who like to enjoy the sandy beaches that stretch along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and encircle the peninsula.

The first written information about the peninsula dates from the Romanesque period, when the peninsula was the island of Akala, on which a Roman settlement was located. The coast is located on the territory of the natural park of the Arrábida Mountains, so lovers of flora and fauna will be interested in seeing rare birds of prey and other inhabitants. Bottlenose dolphins live in coastal waters.

Day 4

Although the town itself is very small and has long been a typical coastal fishing village, it has a very rich history.

Sesimbra received the official status of the district in 1201, although evidence has been found that people lived in these places as early as 3000 BC. On the gentle hills around Sesimbra, there is a large national natural park, Serra da Arrabida, where you can enjoy the beauty of the local nature. And lovers of antiquity should visit the huge fort built in the 17th century, which once served as a reliable defense against pirates.

The fort was built in the 16th century and was used to protect the entrance to the Tagus River from enemy ships, at the mouth of which Carcavelos is located.

Bikini all year round: the warmest places in Europe

The combination of business with pleasure is just about thermal springs: summer entertainment at any time of the year and obvious benefits for those who want to improve their well-being.

It is customary to talk about thermal baths, starting from afar – from Ancient Rome and how its inhabitants found the waters gushing from underground to be incredibly healthy. Then the tales of living water are recalled, having bathed in which you can rejuvenate – if we assume that such exists in reality, then we are undoubtedly talking about thermal springs. The positive image of such resorts is also reinforced by the tender love of the aristocrats of the past, who came to the waters to treat the blues, asthenia, consumption and just unwind.

Advertising on RBC

It so happened that, with rare exceptions, thermal springs are always located away from typical tourist routes. They seem to be behind an invisible circle: if a person is not interested in wellness tourism, his chances of accidentally stumbling upon a sign with the inscription “Thermal springs” are not too great. But fans of health trips know addresses and appearances, like Our Father.

It’s easier to say in which European country there are no thermal springs: Bulgaria, Austria, Sweden, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Spain, Andorra, Belgium can boast of them… Still, the recognized leaders are Iceland, Germany, France, Italy and Hungary, because there are a lot of hot springs in each of these countries, bathing has centuries-old traditions, and the infrastructure of the resorts is famous for its amenities.


Of course, the first and main incentive for visiting thermal springs is still a matter of health, and only then – pleasure. Bathing in warm and hot waters helps with neurological and gynecological diseases, chronic muscle pain, osteoporosis. There is a direct road to balneological resorts for all those who have had a stroke, a sports injury, or a surgical operation. Therapeutic bathing treats skin diseases – dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis. And a visit to the thermal spa will be useful for those in a state of stress and overwork.

Healing mineral water can be drunk, and the list of indications for this is no less extensive: diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, dental problems, respiratory and otolaryngological diagnoses.

To obtain a pronounced therapeutic effect, the procedures must be carried out for at least two weeks. But for a “cosmetic repair” of the body, a surge of strength and vigor, two or three days are enough. “It’s like being born again” – a typical and not at all exaggerating the real state of things review about staying on the waters.


The principle of “do no harm” has not been canceled – unfortunately, for some people, thermal springs can bring not good, but unnecessary health problems. For example, doctors do not recommend visiting such resorts if you have cancer, even if they are in the distant past. Other contraindications are thrombophlebitis and thrombosis, fevers, cardiovascular insufficiency, hypertension, hemophilia, postinfarction period (six months), tuberculosis, Graves’ disease, mental illness. Pregnant women are also not shown treatment on the waters. In general, in case of any doubt, you should definitely consult a doctor.


Many people imagine this country as a barren and harsh land – what can you do, the stereotypes about the north are strong. In reality, Iceland is practically an open-air spa resort. No other country has so many lagoons and pools with warm, inviting thermal water. These oases are well equipped, and they are loved not only by tourists, but also by locals: going for a swim after work or on weekends is the same as visiting a fitness club for us.

Must visit:
The “Blue Lagoon”, a whole complex of natural pools, has been repeatedly named the best spa complex in the world. The lake with turquoise water, the temperature of which varies from 37 to 40 ° C, has long managed to acquire all the infrastructure necessary for recreation and treatment. There is a beauty center, a restaurant and cafe, a VIP lounge and even a hotel. Of course, people come here for medical procedures, but who can resist a volcanic body scrub or sushi with the freshest northern fish?


To immerse yourself in the healing waters, you don’t even need to leave the capital: there are 130 thermal springs in it, and there are more than 1,300 of them in the country. Whether it’s winter or summer, those who come to Budapest can visit 13 therapeutic baths, and if you leave cities, the choice will expand significantly. Treatment on the waters in Hungary is not just bathing: you can make up a whole course of procedures such as carbonic and pearl baths, mud therapy, massages. Many centers are not just well equipped – they are royally monumental and boast beautiful decor. First of all, this applies to the thermal complexes “Széchenyi” and “Gellert”, located in Budapest. It would not be an exaggeration to say that these are the same sights of the city as, for example, the royal palace or Magritte Island.

Must visit: Budapest is not the whole of Hungary, and you will most likely regret later if you don’t visit Lake Hévíz, the world’s largest thermal reservoir. Heviz is located 190 km from the capital of the country, but it is definitely worth it to overcome this distance. The swimming season here is all year round, and in winter, perhaps, even more interesting: the water temperature does not drop below 26 ° C, and a mysterious cloud of steam hangs above its surface. There are many gas bubbles and tiny particles of therapeutic mud in the water, which creates the effect of micro-massage of the body. It offers visitors cryo-, magneto- and electrotherapy, compresses and massages – everything that the doctor prescribes.


The French are famous sybarites, and, of course, they arranged luxurious spa resorts from the thermal springs gushing in the country. Surprisingly, for a long time, only locals could take advantage of the benefits of therapeutic baths and procedures; only not so long ago, the French, reluctantly, decided to still allow foreigners to their wellness treasures.

The names of the two French thermal resorts are certainly on everyone’s lips: these are Vichy and Evian. They do not just treat here, but do it beautifully and in good company – actors, writers, and politicians like to come to the spa towns. And if Vichy is located in the heart of France, 3.5 hours drive from Paris, then Evian is almost a border area, a resort on the shores of Lake Geneva. But, one way or another, these wellness centers have a lot in common: they will undoubtedly appeal to tourists who consider beautiful surroundings an indispensable addition to quality treatment. In addition, the level of luxury hydrotherapy suggests a variety of procedures: for example, at the resort of Evian, they offer yoga classes, Ayurveda, body detox programs and even psychotherapy.

Of course, Vichy and Evian are far from the only thermal resorts in France. There are more than 1,200 springs in the country recognized as curative. The resort of Dax, located 65 km from Biarritz, is very popular: it is treated not only with water, but also with special sulfide silt mud and maritime climate.

Must visit:
A Vichy massage session, of course, can also be ordered in a Moscow spa center, but it is much more pleasant to try it in your historical homeland. This is a jet massage, which is carried out with thermal water with alternating pressures and temperatures. The procedure improves blood circulation and has a lymphatic drainage effect.

ITALY: A rigorous approach

There are thermal spas in every region of the country. The most popular are Abano Terme, Montegrotto Terme, Montecatini Terme, the island of Ischia, Terme de Saturnia, Chianciano Terme, Fiuggi, and they are all as different as the cities of Italy. First of all, their specialization differs: the country’s thermal resorts have a narrow medical focus. For example, in Abano Terme they treat joints, spine and dermatological diseases, in Montecatini Terme – the musculoskeletal system and the gastrointestinal tract. The waters of the Fiuggi resort cure urological diseases and offer special liver cleansing programs. Chiaciano Terme also specializes in the treatment of the liver, and only in this. Terme di Saturnia is a very prestigious place for those who are more interested in getting rid of cellulite and stress.

Must visit:
The thermal springs of the island of Ischia will appeal to those who are in the mood for serious treatment, and those who just want to freshen up and relax a little. People swim in the sea in Ischia all year round, because waters from hot springs enter it, maintaining a comfortable temperature. It turns out three in one: treatment, sea holidays at any time of the year, and even interesting excursions.


The name of the city of Baden-Baden is familiar even to those who are not at all interested in health trips. Associations with a pleasant, idle pastime are quite fair: yes, this is a hospital city with a long history, but first of all, it is an image resort for the wealthy and respectable. Baden-Baden is beautiful, but it’s not Germany’s only thermal resort.
