Budapest is endowed with natural hot water springs. A number of thermal baths are built to take full advantage of curative properties of these springs. Generally, the thermal bath water consists of fluoride ions, sodium, sulphate chloride, hydrogen carbonate, magnesium and calcium. These baths could help in treating damaged joints, degenerative diseases, neuralgia, vertebral disc dislocation and semi-acute arthritis. Temperature of the water varies between 21 degree Celsius and 78 degree Celsius. Some of these baths are gorgeous. Well-maintained public amenities ensure privacy and cleanliness. The city has both gender-specific and mixed baths. There is an entry fee to the baths, but discounted rates are available in the late evenings. This winter, spend leisure with friends and family or alone in the closest bath to your home or hotel.
