Baths in Budapest
In recent decades, Budapest has consolidated its place among the thermal water superpowers. Budapest baths are unique attractions not only locally, but also in Europe and the wellness spas are one of Budapest’s main attractions. Whichever spa you choose, you will certainly not find two identical, as the healing power of water can be enjoyed in different wonderful buildings.
The beneficial effects of medicinal water were already known in Ancient Rome and traces of the ancient baths can still be seen today in Óbuda and Aquincum. Thermal baths in Budapest became more widespread in the 16th century, during the Turkish Occupation. A clear sign of the “bath-boom” was that they started to build one Turkish bath after the other at the bottom of Gellért Hill.
The capital finally received the title “Bath City” in 1943. Among the world’s spa cities, Budapest has the largest number of natural springs, 118, from which approximately 70 million litres of healing water emerges daily. The water temperature is between 21 to 78 °C and has a significant mineral content.
