Thermal Baths, Budapest: 39 reviews and 58 photos
Gelert baths are the oldest and most famous baths. The temperature of the water is roughly 44ºc. They have MANY different kinds of pools and activities. Including a private bath just for two, the communal swimming pool or thermal mineral bath!
Men and Women used to be separated. When I went a couple of years ago this had changed. Be careful, this still may to be true for other thermal baths in Budapest.
Another point to remember is that you must wear a swimming hat in the pools! If you don't want to wear the pastic bag type thing they give you: bring your own.
You can find many others:
All over the city, but mostly in central areas. Look for details at the homepage of Budapest Medicinal Spas & Thermal Springs Co.
P.S. Remember if you forget your swim suit you can hire them from the Gelert pools! You have to put a deposit down which you get back upon returning the swim suit.
Directions: Across The Elizabeth Bridge.Look for Hotel Gellert on St Gellert Square. Buses #7 7A 86 Teteny-busz and trams #18 19 41 47 49 118, stop Szent Gellert ter.
