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.

      Dear Selin,
      Unfortunately, there will be no fast track entries, cabins (changing cubicles) or massages sold during the upcoming Winter Holiday Season (between Dec 24, 2019 – Jan 7, 2020) based on a managerial decision. Please note that the baths will be open, however, we kindly suggest that you go there early because tickets/massages will be sold on the spot on the first-come-first-served basis.
      Have a lovely day.

  6. My partner and I visited the spa on Sunday 5th January and while the spa as very clean and the staff were friendly we were completely taken aback by the fact that there was grown men (35-50 years old) walking round with camera phones filming as they walked round the spa.

    Why is this allowed to happen?
    What kind of place is this?
    I told my partner that I didn’t think it was appropriate that we took photos of each other around the pool etc but to see these men filming in a place where there were women and children in their bathing suits was appalling.

    I can imagine that the laws in Hungary are very different to those of other countries but surely they aren’t so different that this sort of thing is acceptable.

    I’d be curious to know what the spa’s policy on this is as I am completely disgusted by it.
