Széchenyi Bath and Gellért Spa

Visiting Budapest is not complete without bathing in one of its world-famous thermal spring spas. The Romans had already discovered the health effects of the thermal springs in the locations now inside Budapest. However, the culture of the bath began to develop during the Turkish times.

The Széchenyi Bath is largest thermal spring bath complex not only in Budapest, but in all of Europe. It is also the first thermal bath established in Pest. It was built in 1913 in neo-baroque style. The complex was expanded in 1927, and it still has three outdoor and 15 indoor pools. After its expansion, the thermal artesian well couldn't fulfil its purpose, so a new well was drilled. The second thermal spring was found in 1938. Its depth is 1256m and its temperature is 77 °C and it supplies 6.000.000 litres of hot water daily. The complex was damaged during World War II, and was reconstructed through a long process until 1952, when the daily hospital service opened for people who needed physical therapy treatments. The reconstruction of the pools in the swimming section, including the addition of water filtration and circulation devices, was completed in 1999. The so-called "fancy" bath includes a whirling corridor, underwater effervescence production, neck shower, water beam back massage installed in the sitting banks and many other services.

The Széchenyi Bath's thermal spring is one of the deepest and warmest in the city. The bath is situated in City Park, opposite the City Circus, and it can be reached by subway line No. 1 (station of the same name: Széchenyi fürdő).

Since its construction in 1918, the Gellért Spa has been one the most prestigious thermal baths on the Buda side of the city. Gellért Spa is famous for its main hall with its gallery and glass roof, built in the Art Nouveau style, sparkling bath, and open-air pool with artificial waves. The bath is decorated with numerous Art Nouveau furnishings, artistic mosaics and sculptures. The earliest remaining records about the Gellért's "magical healing spring" are from the 15th century. Later, the Turkish favored this spring, because it was warmer and larger than any other springs in Buda. In the 17th century the bath was called the "muddy" bath, due to the fine layer of mineral mud consolidated on the bottom of the pools. The current bath complex and hotel was opened in 1918 and was expanded in 1927 and 1934 with the artificial wave pool and with a bubble bath. Today it works also as a medical bath, with a wide variety of services, including an inhalatorium.
