The Széchenyi Medicinal Bath in Budapest is the largest medicinal bath in Europe. Its water is supplied by two thermal springs, their temperature is 74C and 77C, respectively.
Components of the thermal water include sulphate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and a significant amount of fluoride acid and metaboric acid. Medical indications are on degenerative joint illnesses, chronic and sub-acute joint inflammations, as well as orthopaedic and traumatological post-treatments.
In planning since the 1880s, the bath had originally been referred to as the Artesian spa, but when it opened on 16 June 1913, it was officially named Széchenyi spa after István Széchenyi.
The bath, located in the City Park, was built in Neo-baroque style to the design of Győző Czigler. Construction began on 7 May 1909 with designs by architect Eugene Schmitterer. The pool construction cost approximately 3.9 million Austro-Hungarian korona. The built-up area was 6220m2. The attendance of spa was in excess of 200,000 people in 1913. This number increased to 890,507 by 1919. At that time it had private baths, separate men and women steam-bath sections, and different men / women "public baths". The complex was expanded in 1927 to its current size, with 3 outdoor and 15 indoor pools. It is now possible for both sexes to visit the main swimming and thermal sections.

  • Brand new, nice and very clean bath. Spacious, not crowded. You can relax in the huge thermal basin or swim in the 25 or 50 m long pool. In this time of the year (October) the outdoor facilities as cafeteria is not open. The wellness is in a separate building, sauna, steam, salt chamber, Jacuzzi, walking on pebbles. Reasonable price. Even cheaper if you spend less than 2 hours - plenty enough though. There is some refund. I could recommend this bath for all family. Dagály means: High tide. The bus No 15 just stops in front of the building.
  • The wellness building and the services is there is very good. But no information in the main building about this existence. Only bankcard is usable inside. Prises is not low. The water is clean and sunbeds is free of charge. I ordered pizza from outside and it's come after 15 minutes to the right side of the gate.
