Walking about in Budapest you will soon notice a familiar name popping up again and again. István Széchenyi is one of the most influential historical figures of Hungary, who has done great deeds for the nation and its capital, Budapest. Our hop on hop off tours frequent many great buildings to which Count Széchenyi has a connection.
The Széchenyi Thermal Baths is the largest, most luxurious thermal bath of Hungary, and with a country that has over 150 thermal bath houses (not including spas and pools!), this is a claim with great gravitas. Located in the relaxed city park area, the Neo-baroque bathhouse is over a hundred years old. With three outdoor and fifteen indoor pools, not to mention countless saunas, the bathhouse is visited by over million people every year.
As one of the most popular attractions of the city, we recommend you to come here either early in the morning, or just before the closing hours. Also, days like Mondays and Tuesdays are better choices. The Széchenyi Bath House has one of the heftiest entry fees in the city, around 6000 HUF approximately. Concessions available.
The bathhouse can be visited all time of the year, but it has a special charm during the winter months. As the cold sets in, the outdoor pools remain true to their nature as they are not covered in any way. Sitting in the hot outdoor thermal waters as the first December snow falls on your head in a lush and vivid neo-baroque environment is surely a once in a lifetime experience!
