This is something every visitor to Budapest must do. Unique and grand, this was the highlight of my trip.

It was awesome experience! We tried all bathes, pools & saunas. The big outdoor pool with temperature of water 38 was the best!

Had a lovely time in the plethora of baths, saunas, steam rooms, and pools. I can recommend the steam rooms with the menthol/eucalyptus scent.

It depends what you after. I didn't go, but met some people who did go. There's a lot of stuff that goes in the water (if you know what I mean!). BUT that weekend was when the Sziget festival was on, so it might have been a... More
