Budapest's Thermal Baths Offer Heaven For Less Than 20 Euros
Budapest is a city of numerous delights, but one you can't fail to miss is the city's numerous thermal baths. Hungary's capital sits on over 100 hot springs, and the residents have made the most of this by building lavish bathhouses all across the city. They house not only indoor baths but also swimming pools, spas, and all manner of wellness options that you can indulge in for a fraction of what you'd pay in other parts of Europe. Head there during the day for swimming and relaxing, or party the night away as the most famous baths turn into spa-clubs when the sun goes down.
The city has dozens of baths to choose from, but we're giving you a closer look at two of the most famous: Szechenyi Baths, the biggest and most popular boasting a whopping 18 pools within what looks like a giant yellow palace, and Gellert Baths, which sits on the banks of the river Danube and boasts incredible art nouveau architecture around its 12 baths and pools.
