Thermal bath – relaxation
The best thing about Budapest is even though trekking around to see all the sites may be a little on the exhausting side, any trip to the city isn’t complete without some serious relaxation. As Budapest is conveniently placed on top of a network of mineral springs, both warm and cool, there’s nothing more enjoyable than paying a visit to one of the numerous public spas. Take full advantage of the healing properties of the calcium, magnesium, sulphate and fluoride found in abundance in the waters of Budapest.
Take the renowned Gellért Baths, for instance, a stunning example of belle époque architecture and worthwhile even just to take a peak in the lobby! On the other hand, there are a whole host of Turkish-style bath houses remarkably dating back to the 16th century. Treat your body and soul to sublime rejuvenation in the steam rooms, icy pools, or hot spas and you’ll be ready for everything that Budapest can offer!
Bathing in Budapest is fun too.
