Baths in Budapest


Baths in Budapest

Man has been using thermal water for washing, alleviating pains or for ritual purposes for thousands of years. It was the Romans who built the first termas on the present territory of Hungary, in the period when Hungary - under the name of Pannonia Province - belonged to the Roman Empire. The capital of the provincia, Aquincum, was situated on the northern part of today's Budapest, on the right bank of the river Danube. The archaeological excavations have discovered 21 termas up till now. These baths were supplied by the waters of the springs, which flew from the skirts of the Buda hills and then arrived at their destinations through a canal system. We recommend you to visit the following thermal baths and spas:

Gellért Thermal Baths

Since its building in 1918, the Gellért Spa was one the most prestigious thermal bath on the Buda side of the city. Gellért spa is famous for its main hall with 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 "magical healing spring" are from the 15th century. Later the Turkish favorised this spring, becouse 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 artificial wave pool, and with bubble bath.
