Széchenyi Baths – Budapest

The Széchenyi Baths are the heart and soul of Budapest. Here one hears children giggling, lovers canoodling and old-men chatting. Truly a local hangout where you can be a part of the city, as opposed to a visitor to the city. Széchenyi is certainly one of the places not to miss when you travel to Budapest. Highest of our recommendations.

Gellert Baths Budapest

The baths at the Hotel Gellert may be the most famous of the Budapest bath houses and it is certainly a good example of Hungarian Secession Art Nouveau being constructed between 1912 and 1918.

Hősök Tere – Budapest

It’s the fierceness of the Hungarian Heros that is most striking. They gather in a tight circle beneath the Archangel Gabriel; who rises high above them all. These are the sevan leaders of the seven Magyar tribes that conquered the Carpathian Basin in 896 and founded Hungary in the 9th century (Arpad, Elod, Ond, Kond, Tas, Huba, Tohotom).
