Often referred to as the “City of Spas,” Budapest sits on over 100 hot springs that feed into over a dozen thermal baths, many of which date back centuries. One of the more well-known baths was built by the Turks in 1566. All across the city, visitors can experience a variety of thermal bath experiences, from calming therapeutic spas to lively and entertaining bath parties.
According to Hungary Today, Budapest spas attracted 4.5 million visitors in 2017, with Budapest’s biggest hot spot, Széchenyi, drawing in 1.7 million visitors alone. Learn more about what makes Budapest the thermal bath capital of the world.
