Gellért Baths – Art Nouveau Masterpiece
Of the 40 baths and outdoor pools in Budapest, the Gellért baths, around the back of the famous Gellért Hotel, are the most prominent and elegant. The indoor pool is a firm favourite with photographers and a familiar images of Hungary, consistently upstaging the huge and equally impressive entrance hall. But there is much more to the Gellért than just the Art Nouveau architecture. Slip into the separate men's and women's warm pools, saunas and steam rooms for Turkish-style relaxation, or enjoy the sunshine and splendour of the outside pools, complete with a wave machine for the kids – and the big kids.
