The Széchenyi Thermal Bath is one of the biggest spas in Europe. It was also the first thermal bath of Pest. In 1881 on Vilmos Zsigmondy’s initiative they started deep borings, and found thermal water in the city park. After a 1st temporary bath in 1913 on Gyozo Czigler’s plans the city built the Szechenyi Bath and then expanded it again in 1927. In the middle of the 1960s, further transformations took place, including the creation of a group thermal section as well as a daytime outpatient hospital (complex physiotherapy department). The reconstruction of the pools of the swimming section, their equipment with water filtering and circulation devices was completed in 1999. There is also a 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. It has histrory and tradition, but it’s also a lot of fun and a good opportunity to relax! Try the outside pools and the inside ones, and go to the steam cabin as well! Once in Budapest, you have to try a bath, and this is one of the very best! 🙂
