"Spas and Excursions" Gellert Baths Tip by NetSurfer

Gellert Baths, Budapest: 61 reviews and 93 photos

  Inside the Gellert Baths
by NetSurfer

If you never get out of Budapest proper to see the countryside (and you absolutely should take excursions to the countryside) then you should pamper yourself in town by visiting a different spa each day, interspersed with many glasses of the most excellent local wines and healthy portions of the great food (with lots of fresh paprika peppers naturally.) Make sure you include the Gellért Bath and Széchenyi Bath. While you are at treat yourself to a 30 minute massage - it will cost you about $7 US at the Gellert.

If you do take excursions, at a minimum take the trip to Eger, to Esztergom, to Lake Balaton and to Pécs. And while you are in the area of Pécs, see the wine museum in Villany, the wineries outside Villany, and Siklos castle (see <a href=http:// >here</a> and follow the links to photos from both trips.)

Address: A variety of areas in Budapest and the countryside
Directions: Hotel Gellert - see Gellert Hill. Széchenyi Bath - see the local maps.
