Szechenyi Baths received the most prestigious Hungarian award a company in Magyarorszag can get: the Hungarian Quality Product Award(Magyar Termek Nagydij).
The award was received by the management of Szechenyi Baths and Pool Budapest on 4 September 2012 in the Upper Chamber of the Hungarian Parliament (approx. the “House of Lords”, which is not used any more as a political chamber only as a room for special events and receptions, like the ceremony of the Magyar Termék Nagydíj).
This was the 15th year that the best Hungarian companies received this special prize for their high quality or outstanding services. Only the very best can get the topmost product prize.
So which are the best Budapest baths? We can answer easily that Szechenyi Baths is one of them. :)
Congratulations to all who has helped Szechenyi Baths to get this fantastic award, and be appreciated by not only the annual one million visitors to the thermal baths, amongst them including hundreds of thousands of tourists, but also by the Hungarian state itself.
