Dandár Baths

Dandár Baths

In Ferencváros, district IX of Budapest, near Müpa and the National Theater, there is a small bath that is lesser-known to the general visitor. Dandár bathhouse is housed in a nice art deco building, and has several thermal facilities as well as a sauna section. The architectural plan was prepared by Ferenc K. Császár. The bath was commissioned in 1930, and later transformed in 1936. Originally, the bath operated as a sanitary bath, but it has been operating as a thermal bath since 1978.

Király Thermal Bath

Király Thermal Bath

Arslan, the Turkish Pasha of Buda, began constructing this bath in 1565 and it was completed shortly afterwards by his heir Sokoli Mustafa. The Király Medicinal Bath has never had a direct source of thermal water – it was built far from the springs to ensure the Turks had somewhere to bathe within the city walls in times of siege. The water is supplied by pipes from near today's Lukács Bath. Király Thermal Bath has four pools with hot spring water with calcium, magnesium, hydrogen-carbonate and sulphate, also containing sodium and with a substantial content of fluoride ions. Steam baths, sauna, underwater water jet massage and many other services are also available.

The Széchenyi Baths

The Széchenyi Baths

Thanks to the geological features of the Carpathian Basin, Hungary is extremely rich in thermal springs, and the area of Budapest is no exception: the capital stretches across over 100 springs, many of them accessible to the public in beautiful historical buildings. The Széchenyi Baths, built in 1913 in neo-Baroque style, is undoubtedly the most famous of all: Europe's largest medicinal bath is supplied by a spring of 76°C, and it houses 18 pools, 10 saunas, and various events to be enjoyed all year long.

Palatinus

This open-air bath in the nature conservation area of Margaret Island was opened as a beach in 1919. With the construction of the large pool, it was transformed into an open-air bath in 1921. Owing to its high popularity it had to be expanded, therefore an architectural project tender was launched in 1937, as a result of which the plans composed by István Janáky were accepted. It was modernised in 2002, by adding water filtering and revolving devices. The swimming pool was shaped into three sections: swimming pool, fancy pool and beach pool. Of these, the fancy pool is expecting visitors with neck shower, effervescence generator, and whirling corridor.
