Széchenyi Baths and Swimming Pool
XIV. ker. Állatkerti krt. 11.
It is one of Europe`s largest bath complexes. The atmosphere of Roman bathing culture may be felt in its light, spacious pool halls, while Greek bathing culture is reflected in the tub baths, but traces of Nordic traditions may also be found in the heat chambers, saunas and dipping pools. This first spa of Pest owes its existence to the well dug by Vilmos Zsigmondy in 1879.
The present bath building was constructed in 1913. The swimming pool was built in 1927, but it was only open from May till September until the 1960ies, when, in 1963, it was made suitable for winter swimming as well. Since then it has been open throughout the year. The two `public bath` units were established also in 1927, today housing the mixed baths and the complex physiotherapy units (day hospital).
Budapest, II Fö utca 84.
One of the most beautiful baths to have survived from the Turkish period (16th century). These waters may help chronic spinal and articular complaints, and inflammatory spiral diseases too.
