    I have a reservation during Easter days in the beer spa and I have a combinated ticket. This means that I have access to both therms.

    After the beer spa, until what time I can stay in the Szechenyi baths?
    We would like to go to the beer spa first and them take our time in the Szechenyi with no rush.

    Thanks in advance.
