Gellért Thermal Baths, Budapest, Hungary
There was a flood at the Gellért back in 2002. Watch the two men, so casually and calmly, “soak” it all in at 1:44. Then, at 3:14, they get out of the pool and start walking around. At 4:34, water spills onto the streets.
So much hot mineral water gone to waste!
Széchenyi Baths, Budapest, Hungary
Széchenyi bath in City Park is where people play chess outdoors in steaming water. It is Europe’s largest public bath—open since 1913. As well as bathing in hot springs, you are encouraged to drink the sulphuric water. After this and some time in the aromatheraphy scented saunas and mud chambers, you will be feeling as good as new.
