- Events of the Day
- Hot water and springs run under most of Budapest and several opulent
and over-the-top thermal spas were built by Romans, Turks, and
Hungarians. The Gellert was today's desination - a building with
both hotel and thermal faciltiies. Pool entry is located on the
side with wooden glass booths to purchase tickets. This is
followed by entry to a changing area - wooden booths with a reclining
bed and locker. To lock up, an attendant has to be flagged down
and will manually lock.
interior pools were trimmed with endless glazed tiles with marble pools
and the exterior pools were 1950s type configeration that included a
wave pool. The city has a varity of Thermal spas - including
large scale exterior pools with built in chess sets. All are
ready for some type of refurbishment.
stops included a stroll down the main shopping street Vaci Utca, Budapest Zoo,
and evening stroll to view the lights of the city. One painful
reminder of Nazi history is the bronze shoes moment on the river bank.
From the high velocity Metro escalators to large scaled city sights, Budapest should always be a travler's destination.
