Lukács Thermal Baths

Lukàcs Baths, located close to the Margaret Island, is a beautiful structure featuring a number of pools and different water temperature.

If you are spending a few days in the Hungarian capital city, you should definitely visit one of its many thermal baths. Budapest is known as the “city of spas”. Indeed, there are a number of beautiful complexes characterized by unique structures that will leave you speechless.

Lukàcs Thermal Baths – that is to say St Luke Bath – date back to the middle age. The structure was built during the 12th century next to monasteries in order to cure the sick. In the 15th and 16th century the hot springs were used to grind wheat in windmills.

In 1884 Fülöp Palotay decided to purchase the whole complex to turn it into a thermal bath. Its splendor stayed untouched until today. In 1979 an adjacent daytime hospital was added to the baths.

The structure is a real work of art that remained untouched; one can still admire the marble tablets donated by patients who regained their health.

The water and its benefits

Water temperature ranges from 21° to 49°C; the water contains magnesium, hydrocarbon, and hydrogen. Water at higher temperature contains fluoride, chloride, and sulfur.

Lukàcs Baths are very popular for people suffering from chronic spinal inflammation, arthritis, and rheumatic diseases, but also for people who want to treat themselves to some relax and mud packing treatments.

The Mineral Water Room

In the garden, visitors will find a mineral water room which was built in 1937. Its drinking water is a real miracle in case of intestine or stomach diseases.
