Our guide Erika today told us that even though Hungary comprises a very small chunk of real estate in Eastern Europe, the saying is that God blessed the land with riches in the form of thermal springs.
Budapest has a long history of thermal baths, including the Szechenyi Spa Baths, the first hot spring bath palace on the Pest side of Budapest. In 2013 Szechenyi Baths turned 100 years old.
I will admit that I didn’t take any of these photos and they’re skimmed from others. I left my phone in the hotel at the suggestion of the concierge.
The evening was cool and glorious. I enjoyed both pools, one with 30C water and one with 37C.
Next time: a full day. With friends.
