i can not imagine better program for a snowy and cold winter day as sitting in a hot thermal pool outdoor. The Romans had already discovered the healthy effects of thermal springs on the current location of Budapest, however, the culture of bath started developing only in the Turkish times. The Széchenyi Bath is Budapest’s largest thermal spring bath, which was built in 1913 in neo-baroque style. Its thermal spring is the deepest and warmest of all baths of Budapest and it belongs to the biggest ones. It is situated in the City park, opposite of the City Circus and it can be reached by subway line No. 1 (station of the same name: Széchenyi fürdő). It is the biggest and most important of all thermal baths on the Pest side, with numerous indoor and outdoor pools. By booking your tickets in advance, can be avoided the often long-time waiting in the queue in front of the bath. I usually buy my ticket and make reservation for a massage online at Hungaria Concert.
