After feeling a little banged up following nights in Amsterdam and Prague, the Szechenyi Baths were a very restorative experience upon arriving in Budapest. I felt the baths were a cross between a community pool and a spa. Families and couples packed the place, locals and tourists alike, with plenty of lounge space surrounding the main pools outside. Inside, there was a wide variety of pools at varying temperatures (from about 55F to >100F) and varying levels of mineral content, dry saunas, and steam rooms. We made a point of visiting the baths on our first day in Budapest, and we also returned early one Sunday morning (basically had the place to ourselves). Any muscle-soreness, hangover, or general fatigue melted away after a few hours at the baths. If visiting Budapest, this is a can't-miss.
