Budapest is one of the world’s most famous cities for its thermal waters. All around the Hungarian capital city there are more than a hundred springs of hot healing waters known since the Roman times. During the Ottoman empire the Turks built a number of thermal complexes and baths.
Margaret island, located between the Margaret bridge and the Arpad bridge on the Danube, is considered the gem of Budapest thanks to its beautiful park, its numerous sports facilities, and its thermal baths. The island is one of the most popular wellness centers around the area.
Among the most charming thermal baths there are the Szechenyi baths, which is one of the biggest centers in Europe located in a Neo-Baroque building, and the elegant Gellert baths located inside a liberty style building.
Among the most popular Turkish baths in Budapest there are the Kiraly Bath still well preserved, the Lukacs Baths, which are very popular among writers and artists, the Rudas baths built in the 1400, and the Rac baths.
On summer time Budapest citizens go daily to the numerous outdoor pools scattered around the city, like the Palatinus pool – also known as Pala – located on Margaret Island, and to the Romai pool in Obuda, surrounded by a wide and beautiful green park. These pools are great to enjoy some fun, sport, and relax.
