One of the emblematic attractions of Budapest, a popular destination for tourists to the city. The building’s interest is that the model made of it represented our country at the Mini Europe fashion exhibition in Brussels.
Pest’s first spa, the Szechenyi Thermal Bath was created by Vilmos Zsigmondy. The mining engineer initiated the deep drilling in the Városliget, which proved to be successful, and in 1881 the spa bath of the calcium-magnesium-hydro carbonate spa was opened under the name of “Artézi Bath” until the opening of the Szechenyi Bath. Since Bath Artézi was less and less able to serve the needs of the age, the Széchenyi Spa was built according to the plans of György Czigler, whose bath parts and the building itself have undergone numerous renovations and enlargements during the 1900s.
During the enlargements, male and female populace baths, as well as a beach bath, were established, later in the 1960s a thermal department and a complex physiotherapy class were housed in the building. In 1963, the dressing rooms of the beach bath were paved, which since the completion of the works the outdoor swimming pools have been operating in winter.

His unpopular popularity and the need for bathing in the ever-widespread and popular way of bathing made the spa’s development indispensable. In August 1927, the baths of the spa bath were completed, as well as a spa bath
