The Széchenyi Spa, Budapest

2012 has already been a manic year for SOV so as an early reward and break for myself, I managed to sneak off on a little break to Budapest and enjoy some fantastic spa experiences with some good friends of mine.

One of the spas in particular, The Széchenyi Spa is definitely worth telling you about.  Known for its beautiful architecture and interior and 15 huge pools, The Széchenyi was certainly worth the visit. 

One of the most fantastic features for me was the outdoor pool - no ordinary pool. Heated (naturally) from 910metres below ground and reaching a massive 38 degrees in temperature, it was like heaven. The experience itself was a little unreal, sitting in such a warm pool, outside, with partly submerged old men  playing chess in their speedo's !!  This is something we thought we would only see in the guide books!

Relaxation aside, the spas are also known and visited for medical help.  The hot spring contains a significant amount of fluoride and metabolic acid, along with calcium, magnesium, hydro-carbonate, sodium and sulphate effective to cure degenerative illnesses of joints, as well as chronic and semi-acute arthritis! 

If you’re ever in Budapest, The Széchenyi Spa is certainly one to visit!
