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 Conor,
      Thank you for your comment.
      The booking form automatically redirects you to the PayPal page, where you can pay by card without owning or opening a PayPal account, simply using the interface of PayPal. You do not need to have a PayPal account for payment as there is an option for ‘Guest check out’. On the page, after scrolling down, you can see a grey button saying “Check Out as a Guest”. If you click on it, you can fill out your card payment details, and after clicking “Pay Now”, you are all set.
      Please let me know if I can help with your booking.

          Hello Federico,

          Thank you for contacting us about the spa baths entry requirements.

          Since the Hungarian vaccination level has reached the target number 5.5 million, from July 3rd 2021 Covid passports will no longer be needed to enter the thermal baths (wearing masks and presenting immunity cards are no longer required in most of the places of attractions in Budapest). Please check the general travel regulations to Hungary before making a reservation.

          Enjoy your visit to Budapest!

      Dear Guilb,
      thank you for your inquiry about a photo permit at Szechenyi Spa Baths.
      Photos can be taken inside the Baths but only for your own private use, and only if there are no other people in the pictures.
      If you wish to publish the photos, I’m afraid you will need to ask for a photo permit even if it is a micro blog or a smaller website.
      Please contact us if you need the email address for the photo permit. info [at] szechenyispabaths.com
      Most guests are arriving after 11 am and in the early afternoon hours, so if you arrive just after 9 am, there is a good chance that there will be much fewer people. I hope I could help. Enjoy your holiday in Budapest!
