The largest medicinal bath in Europe
Széchenyi Bath is not one of Budapest’s oldest – it was opened in 1881 – but it is among the most popular. Located in the northern section of the Városliget park, its extensive grounds include three open-air pools and one indoor pool in the neo-Baroque style with steam baths and hot tubs. A stylistically matching entrance hall was added to the buildings on the northern side in 1927. The whole complex has been restored to its former glory, and a glance into the entrance hall is recommended to non-swimmers as well! The pool is fed by a thermal spring at a temperature of over 70 degrees Celsius (160°F).
