Budapest Thermal Baths are well known all over central Europe and, in more recent years, travellers returning to northern Europe and North America have spread the word about the health benefits that can be gained after visiting Budapest, as well as the simple leisurely pleasures of spending time in Budapest Spa Baths.
Many first-time visitors associate Budapest's baths with Soviet times as the system for using the baths seems rather antiquated to some. However, Budapest Spa Baths date back much further than this to the time of the Romans, who were as interested in Hungary for its thermal springs as much as for its geopolitical location.
New baths were constructed during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by the Turkish. Rudas Baths Budapest, for example, are more than 450 years old and are well worth visiting if only to marvel at the incredible architecture. If you are suffering from joint problems or a medical complaint related to your bones then a visit or two here could well help to improve your overall health.
