Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Budapest’s bathing culture goes back centuries – to the Romans and perhaps beyond – and today you’ll find a variety of baths and spas that cater to (nearly) every taste. There are 16th-century Turkish baths built under the Ottoman occupation; there are grand fin-de-siècle pools with art nouveau details and neoclassical colonnades; there are art deco bath buildings, ultra-modern thermal facilities and even outdoor beach-style bathing spots. You could spend all holiday hopping from bath to spa to bath to spa and still have pretty much the best time of your life.
