Built in 1566, these renovated baths are the most Turkish in Budapest, with an octagonal main pool, domed cupola with coloured glass and massive columns. It’s a real zoo on mixed weekend nights, when bathing costumes (rental 1500Ft) are compulsory.

You can enter the lovely swimming pool (with locker weekdays/weekends 2200/2500Ft, with thermal bath 4200/4700Ft, open 6am-8pm daily, plus 10pm-4am on Friday and Saturday) separately if you’re more interested in swimming than soaking. There’s also a flashy wellness centre with massage and a shopping list of treatments, and a wonderful restaurant/bar above it at the southern end of the complex.
