Thermal baths in Budapest

Hi everyone

I was wondering if you usually take a shower after spending time in the thermal baths in Budapest? I would assume you do, but I am in doubt because I thought you might not because you wouldn't wash of the minerals of the thermal water. But I don't know if it matters.

Does anyone know if it's normal to shower or not to shover after the thermal baths?

Thanks in advance.

Having gone to hot springs in the US, I wasn't sure if the thermal bath water would leave a smell on the skin. It did not - there is no odor. I did shower after spending about an hour between a couple of baths at Gellert, and a quick trip in the (very hot) sauna. I was very relaxed, but also a bit sleepy for the rest of the day.

We were in Budapest during the Christmas and New Years holidays a few years ago. We visited the Gellert spa and soaked for a few hours then got dressed and left, but we went right back into the hotel. Off to the right of the lobby is a nice bar ---> https:/…image-M.jpg
