Thermal Spa Experience

The Tasting Room – Wine and Tapas bar in Cascais

Exploring the world of thermal spa relaxation in the city is a truly enchanting and undoubtedly one of the top incentives in Budapest! The city’s thermal baths have been cherished for centuries, drawing inspiration from the ancient Roman tradition of bathhouses, and Budapest is even often referred to as the ‘city of spa’s’ due to the abundance of them! Two of the most famous and iconic thermal baths are the Széchenyi Thermal Bath and the Gellért Thermal Bath and we argue that no trip to Buapest is complete without a visit to one, so sit back in the beautiful surroundings and soak up the relaxation.
