It is situated in the Sáros county on a floodplain terrace of the Taploy River, in the hills of the Beskid Mountains, part of the Carpathians. The "Fürdő" in the postmark is Hungarian for Spa. The therapeutic mineral water springs in the Spa, about 2.5 km north of the town, are beneficial to people with circulatory system diseases.
