Budapest: The World’s Thermal Bath Capital

Did you know that Hungary is a land of thermal springs?

Its capital, Budapest, has 118 springs providing over 70 million liters of thermal water a day, remaining the only capital in the world that is rich in thermal waters with healing qualities.

Well, one of our recent incentive groups has decided to find out for themselves. They went to one of Europe’s biggest bath complexes, Széchenyi Bath, and spent their Saturday morning basking in the rays of the spring sun.

Széchenyi was the first hot spring bath palace on the Pest side of Budapest, built between 1909 and 1913. Now over 100 years old, it has become a top tourist attraction in Budapest, with 1.7 million visitors in 2018.




Grand architecture and medicinal waters make this a bucket list experience when visiting the city. Széchenyi features lap pools, whirlpools, and the main pool where most visitors tend to relax. Besides the usual treatments it also offers off the beaten track services such as night parties known as “sparties” and thermal beer spa – a brand new attraction in Budapest.

Other notable public thermal baths in the city are Gellért, Rudas, Király, Lukács.

If you’re looking to unwind and de-stress, Budapest is the place to be. Take a dip in one of the many famous thermal baths, enjoy a unique spa experience or stay in one of the city’s health spa resorts, and bathe your cares away. You’re sure to leave feeling calm, revitalised and relaxed.
