Located in the North East of the city, alight at the metro stop of the same name, Szechenyi Furdo (Szechenyi Baths), for Budapest's most famous baths. A bright yellow palace, resembling the summer retreat of a decadent Roman Emperor, is the superb setting for this ever popular spa resort. Head inside for thermal pools, frigidaria, saunas, steam rooms, mineral pools and showers, or stay outside and sunbathe and swim surrounded by baroque statues and bronzed bodies. 2400 forints will get you in, although it may take wild horses to drag you out. Read more about the Budapest baths experience in our full length article on the Szechenyi Baths (coming soon!).

We loved this spa. Lockers now operated by an electronic gizmo on your wrist so no need to wait for your belongings. Quieter and nicer than Gellert
What an amazing place. This is a must-see for any visitors of Budapest. Come here for a relaxing (and authentic) day......
fantastic! It took me ages just to wander through the inside, as I kept getting waylaid by yet another sauna, hot tub, cold pool etc etc. best of all is outside though, where there are outdoor pools. Sunbathing on the ground can be a bit uncomfortable (bring a thick towel) but it's always fun to go native. Changing rooms were confusing too, but we got there eventually. Basically get changed, put all your stuff in any locker and then wait til the geezer with the keys comes around to lock up after you... you gotta find him again when you want ur stuff back. Anyway I heard szechenyi baths are the people's favourite in Budapest, so you needn't just take my word for it...
