Budapest is known for its thermal waters and there are a number of baths in the city that you can choose from. One of the more accessible baths are the public Szechenyi Baths and Pool. This was the first public thermal baths to open on the “pest” side of Budapest – opening in 1881. There are a number of covered baths that range in temperature from painfully cold to reasonably hot.
Several saunas set at various temperatures are also available. The big highlight is the outdoor pool – which can be crazily crowded in the summer time. Changing facilities / lockers are available for rent (cabines). Massage rooms are located on one side of the outdoor pools. It is very easy to whittle away several hours here relaxing and in the summer alternating between the outdoor pool and the indoor ones. For more information visit: www.szechenyibath.com
