Beside of the medical treatments we offer also medical spa trips. The Hungarian capital is home to millions of people as well as dozens of therapeutic baths. No fewer than 123 thermal springs release over 30,000 cubic metres of mineral- rich water to the surface, filling the pools and the tubs of spas and bathing temples, both ancient and state-of-the-art. Budapest is often called the "Spa Capital" because it is the only capital city in the world with real hot springs inside the city boundaries.
The hot water of the elegant neo-Baroque Szechenyi Baths behind Heroes' Square on the Pest side, offers scenic open-air bathing even in the winter months. This is one of the largest spa complexes throughout Europe. Many people come here just to gossip and unwind, but elderly men, with just their shoulders out of the water as they play chess at the water's edge, are also a familiar sight. It just goes to show that baths are temples for the mind as well as the body.
The Gellert Thermal Bath was built in the so-called Art Nouveau style, which gives you a fascinating experience. By the wave pool you can take Massage with tufa stone, Spa pedicure, Chocolate spa, Cleopatra bath, and Herbal bath.
One of the most visited spas in Budapest is located on the bucolic traffic free park island named after St Margaret, whose medieval monastery ruins can still be visited on the island. Take daily strolls around the island's centuries-old trees, rose garden, hidden statues and ruins. The island is in the center of the Danube that divides Budapest into two parts, Buda and Pest. Buda is the ancient, hilly part of the city with its historic district and Royal Castle overlooking the Danube River, while Pest is the commercial, entertainment and shopping area of the metropolis.
