BUDAPEST IS HISTORIC Tour
In 1930′s, Budapest was formally labeled as “City of Spas” – such a reputation firmly remains today, captivating locals and travelers from abroad. The story dates back to Romans who first colonized the area and wanted to utilize natural thermal springs for wellness. According to historians, there are still ruins visible where you can see out-of-this-world bath houses established during this time. Many newer baths were built during the Turkish period (1541–1686) where relaxed bathing and medicinal healing reasons attracted both the young and the old. In 1920′s, the city recognized that baths were gaining rising popularity with the public, money could be made from tourists.
If you want to spend more days here these are the best to give your stay a full closure. Durring our tour I will talk about the baths history, their differences and we will pick the one best suited for you where you can relax for as many hours as you want. Naturally you can have a massage in every establishment so you can easily make a days worth of stay. Because there are big differences between the most famous baths, I would recommend checking out multiple. They all have a different style, different people from different age groups visit these. I’d love to help you picking the best one for you. As for me it depends on the season which one I like to visit. Durring the winter time here is one of my favorite the Gellért Thermal Bath.
Mosaics, stained glass and Art Nouveau! Gellért is not only aesthetically gorgeous, it’s fame began way back since the 13th century! Originally built in 1918, the Gellért Baths and Hotel once contained Turkish baths and a hospital during the Middle Ages. Located in city center, the large bath house (with both indoor and outdoor pools) has the easiest access to the history of the city. Although the most expensive, Gellért is also the most popular.
