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 Budapestâ€™s biggest hot spot, SzÃ©chenyi, drawing in 1.7 million visitors alone. Learn more about what makes Budapest the thermal bath capital of the world.
