Gellért BathsThroughout Budapest are a whopping 123 therapeutic hot springs, but these, in the stately, slightly dusty Hotel Gellért (built in 1918) might be the most famous. The communal bath in the center of the hotel spa is for everyone, but the most interesting and traditional spa experience is in the adjacent gender-separated areas. Here, join Hungarian locals in pools of varied temperatures, steam baths, and saunas, and jumping into ice-cold baths in between. No one wears anything (save a towel to drape while walking between pools), and everyone takes their time to not only bask in the baths but also gaze at the Art Nouveau tiling on the vaulted ceilings.
Relax in Budapest's Healing Waters
Gellert Bathhouse and Spa, Budapest
If you get the chance to go you must experience at least one Medicinal bath, we went to the Gellert Spa Baths which are the eldest ... We entered feeling a little uncomfortable as nudity is encouraged, but once you relax you really feel like a local and appreciate the beauty of human nature!
