Rudas Thermal BathsNearly 500 years old, this small thermal bath complex will send visitors back in time ... as well as into a state of deep relaxation. In a jewel-like building established in the 16th Century during the Turkish occupation, a 33-foot dome tops the central circular (and lusciously colonnaded) thermal pool area, which on most days is open only to men but does have designated women's days. The sauna and spas are open to both genders; swimming and therapy treatments are also available, and the rooftop hot tub offers stunning views of the Danube. Be aware that here as elsewhere, nudity is common; in fact, condoned.
