Spas have been a part of routine in Hungarian life for centuries. The Romans built spas on the banks of the Danube long ago taking advantage of the thermal vents in the region. The muslims used the thermal springs to bath and keep hygiene. The Christians eventually followed suit and the Hungarian spa scene eventually evolved into a communal rite and ritual for all of the locals and today’s tourists alike..
Gellert Thermal Bath is one of the most famous and easy to reach thermal baths in Budapest across the Szabadság bridge on the Buda side of the river. It is a great stop after a long flight, so relax, your on vacation!
The spa circuit is awesome here and they even have a rooftop hot tub and tanning deck. Go there at sunset and watch it from the hot tub! Unforgettable.
