Although these may be the best-known for foreigners, all locals know the place to go is the Szechenyi Baths near Hősök ter (Heroes Square). The over-the-top Neo-classical building seems to house an endless number of pools. Some are outdoors for swimming and others indoors are heated in a range of temperatures from near freezing to scalding hot.
The local population of chess-playing, Speedo wearing, grandpas can be found lounging here day in and day out. And at €11 to get in, it’s a real steal for an entire day of people watching and relaxation.”
