Rudas Baths – Turkish favourite

Free entrance for Budapest Winter Hot Pack guests

The Rudas, near the Buda bridgehead of Erzsébet híd, is a men-only baths (although the swimming pool is open to both sexes) built by the Turkish Pasha of Buda in the 16th century. Its soothing turquoise octagonal pool makes it all the more relaxing - and helps you come to terms with wearing nothing but a skimpy apron. Open Monday to Friday 06-20, Saturday and Sunday 06-13 (The bath is opened on Tuesday for women). Evening and night opening hours: Friday to Saturday: 10 pm – 4 am
