Natural spas and hot springs in Budapest
Budapest, Central Hungary, Hungary|
Known as the ‘City of Spas’, Budapest has more thermal and medicinal water springs than any other city – 118 in fact, providing over 70 million litres of thermal water a day. Although used by the Romans, spa bathing didn’t become an integral part of Budapest culture until the 16th-century Turkish occupation.
Today there are 15 public thermal baths (and many more private ones), notably the Szechenyi, a vast golden palace of steam pools and artesian water baths.
