The 2013 Night of Baths Party is a much awaited Budapest festival.
Originally, the Night of Baths festival known in Hungarian as the ‘Furdok Ejszakaja’ was planned some time between 2013 Feb-April, but then the Magic Bath Parties in Lukacs Bath (€18) were very popular, and from June 1 until September 28, 2013, the Szechenyi Bath Parties (€22) rock the nightlife of Budapest city. Tip: the most incredible bath party in summer is the Water Circus Party in Budapest in Szechenyi Baths. Book while you can.
Anyway, it does not mean that the Night of Baths Festival will be cancelled in 2013. Watch out for the autumn / winter months for updated news.
But what is the Night of Baths party festival like in Budapest? Unique, awesome, fun! DJs play the latest trendy remixes, laser shows color the walls, beers, wines, cocktails are readily available, flipflops and towels stand in heaps by the pools, and people are having lots of fun, even if the weather is chilly, as 4-5 thermal baths of Budapest Hot Spring supply is the venue of the festival!
Date of the Night of Baths Budapest Party:
10 pm – 3 am, maybe Winter 2013. The date is unconfirmed yet.

Tickets Night of Baths Budapest
You can buy tickets in advance for the Night of Baths festival, or buy bath tickets queuing outside the baths, where long lines build up by 10 pm. If you have a pre-purchased ticket, you can stand in the speed queue. Szechenyi Bath gets pretty busy and crowded on these nights as the entrance fees are very low (all time low).

You can travel between the baths by using the Budapest public transport system (night buses), or by taking the official party taxi cars, which offer special, cheap, flat rates from one bath to the other.
