On your way to the Szechenyi thermal baths, you will no doubt pass Heroes Square.
The Millennium Memorial is the central site of Heroes Square, and displays statues of the leaders of the 7 tribes that founded Hungary in the 9th century, among with other outstanding figures of Hungarian history.
The construction of this memorial began when Hungary celebrated their 1000th anniversary in 1896, Heroes square was only finished in 1900.
One thing is for certain, it looks stunning in the evening.
The Szechenyi Thermal Bath is the largest medicinal bath in Europe.
Its water is supplied by two thermal springs, their temperature is 37 °C and 32 °C respectively.
Initially I was disappointed it wasn’t hotter especially given that it was -2°C outside as I ran from the comfort of the changing rooms to the baths.
But, after simmering in the water for a while I realised that if it was any hotter I wouldn’t have been able to stay in the bath for as long as I did.
The best part was when I found the whirlpool.
Let’s just say I crashed into a few unsuspecting couples, and ruined their amorous displays – muahahaa.
It really was beautiful there, so take my advice and go there in the EVENING.
Everyone looks sexier this way and the bath looks even more glorious.
Check out the guy doing a handstand in the bath. Skills.
