Szechenyi Spa Baths is in the biggest green park of Budapest, in the City Park, close to a bunch of Budapest attractions. The  Neo-baroque palace was specifically built for hosting Szechenyi Baths as Hungary has been the country of baths (and Budapest the City of Baths) for many centuries: starting with the Roman settlers who built the first spa baths, through the 16th century Turkish occupiers who built many of the famous and revived Turkish baths in Budapest to the 19-20th century natural medical trends that promote aqua therapies and their deeply beneficial effects. The beautiful building of the spa baths is the design of Gyozo Czigler (Győző Czigler) who started to build Szechenyi Furdo in May 1909.

Come and enjoy your time in Budapest in Szechenyi Spa Baths, in a beautiful, richly decorated palace. The perfect place to chill out, to get to know locals, make business deals and fall in love.

  1. Hi!
    I booked for my friends and I coming from the us. Our flight just got diverted and delayed so we won’t get there until 1600. But I put the 1800 when booking. Will that be a problem? Can we reschedule for a later time?

  4. Hello. It’s written on the ticket that the entry time is between 9am and 6pm, but Google says that Baths are open between 6am and 10pm. Is it possible to arrive to Baths by 7am-8am on Saturday?
