Széchenyi Baths

It was as a result of the drillings of geologist Vilmos Zsigmondy, over the period 1868-77, that this medicinal water source, with a temperature of 74˚ C, was brought to the surface.

The medicinal baths section was built at the beginning of the 20th century, in the Neo-Baroque style. The medicinal waters are particularly effective for the treatment of  joint and muscle damage, arthritis and neuritis.

During the 1960’s, a physiotherapy section, and a thermal- baths section, were established

The open-air swimming pool, with its sun-bathing terraces and associated four-level building, were completed in 1926.

In 1999, the water supply to the pools was converted to a constant circulatory and filtering system.
