With over 40 spas, baths and public pools (8 of which have earned the title of Medicinal Baths) it’s no wonder Budapest is often called the City of Spas or the City of Thermal Waters.

Guests staying at BudaHome Apartments will have the opportunity to easily reach 3 of the city’s most famous Medicinal Baths which are located in our neighborhood.

The Gellért is usually the most popular choice with tourists and for a good reason! Its grandiose Art Nouveau architecture, has made it a must-see ever since it opened back in 1918.

The only downside is the same you’ll have with every popular tourist attraction around the world…it’s always…well., full of tourists!
However Gellért Baths are not the only choice for high-quality thermal treatments. The Rudas and Rácz Medicinal Baths (located 400m from us at the foot of Gellért Hill) have recently undergone major renovation works and are definitely worth a visit. 

Rudas Baths were built during the Turkish domination of Hungary and have been operating since the 16th century.

They have maintained the customs and style of a traditional Turkish bathhouse and their octagonal pool built beneath a beautiful dome is in itself worth the admission price. Night bathing on Fridays and Saturdays is simply not be missed!

When visiting the Városliget (City Park), the green lungs of the city extending behind Heroes’ Square, be sure to include a trip to Szécsényi Thermal Baths.

Housed inside a beautiful neo-baroque palace, these baths welcome over 1 million visitors each year. And with 18 pools (15 of which are thermal) it’s easy to understand why.

Despite the harsh Hungarian weather, the outdoor steaming pools are used year-round and you’ll always find someone engaged in a chess game while immersed in the soothing hot water.
If you want to go off the beaten track then pay a visit to Lukács and Kiràly Baths (Veli Bej) .

Lukács Baths have been the preferred meeting place for Hungarian artists and intellectuals for 120 years. Water from its drinking fountain with highly curative power. has been bottled and sold around the world for over a century.

Veli Bej has the oldest Turkish Bath in the country which has been impeccably preserved through the centuries. It’s definitely a hidden gem worth discovering.

So now you know! Never come to Budapest without a bathing suit!
