Bathing like a local in the City of spas

Bathing in thermal spas has become a huge part of Hungarian people's life in general, and Budapest's residents in particular. That's why these places are always crowded, even during the cold winter days. Rudas Bath is probably the most popular medieval Turkish bath, and was established as early as the 16th century. The bath is located at the foot of the Gellert Hill on the Buda side, which you can easily visit and relax after visiting the Liberty Statue.

O'bon Paris' tip

Rudas Bath is currently the only bath in Budapest that offers men only and women only days. You can check their website for details prior to arriving.
Thermal spas are crowded so if your schedule allows it, avoid coming on weekends. If you don't want to rent swimming supplies, you should bring your swimwear, towel, and slippers with you.
