The palace-like edifice contains a huge thermal pool where people often play chess while immersed in chest-high, and very hot, water.

It was a learning experience, more so as there were no guides to explain the way things worked. Made our way around to the different temperature baths, I don't believe the temperatures shown were all accurate but interesting never the less. Finished up in the...More

Great to spend 5-6 hours there chilling trying different thermal water. The architecture is astonishing too.

Nice place to relax and enjoy your day with very clean pools they need to put extra chairs around the pools more maintenance to the restaurant and food quality, the underground floor need more ventilation. Very cooperative staff and helpful.
