Thermal Spa · Historic Site
Combine the medicinal healing of St. Gellert Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool with the rich history of the famous Hotel Gellért.

Learn about the hot thermal springs, dating back to the 13th century, and the site itself, which was a hospital during the Middle Ages and a bath during Ottoman rule.
