Visiting Budapest is not complete without bathing in one of its world-famous thermal spring spas. The Romans had already discovered the healthy effects of the thermal springs on the locations now inside Budapest, however the culture of bath started develop just in the Turkish times. It was built in 1913 in neo-baroque style. At that time it had private baths, separate men and women steam-bath sections, and different men/women "public baths".

The complex was expanded in 1927, and it still have 3 outdoor, and 15 indoor pools. After its expansion, the thermal artesian well couldn't fullfill its purpose, so a new well was drilled. The second thermal spring was found in 1938. Its depth is 1256 m (4 120 ft), and its temperature is 77 °C (170.6 °F) and it supplies 6.000.000 litres (1 585 032 US gallons) of hot water daily. The complex was damaged during the second world war, and was reconstructed in many steps till 1952, when the daily hospital service opened for people who needed physiotherapy treatment.

Its thermal spring is one of the deepest and warmest in the city. The bath is situated in the City park, opposite of the City circus and it can be reached by subway line No. 1 (station of the same name: Széchenyi fürdõ).
