#50 of 65 in Spas in Budapest
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.

  • Amazing spa in Budapest. Booked and paid online, all very easy. The spa itself is fantastic, several different pools of varying temperatures plus a full length swimming pool. The inside and gorgeous, and had a brilliant and relaxing vibe. Had a massage too, which was also great. Highly recommend.
  • Completely disappointed. Complete lack of customer service, greetings and direction. So let me help. If you go, prepay and get the cabinet version. Gives you more privacy. Second, make sure you bring towels, soap, etc Especially sandals. The thermal baths are In the bottom of the building. And ask if the stream bath works. Neither were! This is designed for a complete community experience so do not expect anything else. Oh, I also doubt that the waters actually have minerals as the website says because I left smelling like choline. Will not visit again and waste my money.
