Budapest’s Finest Art Nouveau Thermal Spa – Gellért Bath
No other bath gives quite the same feeling of history, culture, unusual fun and sybaritic soaking all in one, like Gellért bath of Budapest. We find records about the “miraculous” springs spurting up on the territory of the bath from as early as the 13th century. At that time the site was named „Sárosfürdő” (Mud bath) because of the fine spring silt that was pushed up together with the spring water and settled at the bottom of the pools. These springs were later favoured by the Turks as well, who enlarged the bath to a real „ilidja”, with hotroom and two pools, mentioned even by the Turkish writer Evlia Cselebi.
Today’s Gellért Baths dates from 1918, although the wave pool and whirlpool bath are later additions. The present building, with its glass dome, terraces, open-air pool and bathhouses, took six years to complete. In the 1920’s, the Gellért became the center of upmarket social life. In 1927, the open-air pool with artificial waves was constructed and, seven years later, the indoor thermal pools were added. The indoor and outdoor baths are supplied with water from a source deep within Gellért Hill. Its chalky, slightly acidic, hydrogen-carbonate, radioactive water contains many minerals. The water surges from its source at a temperature of 43°C.
The bath still displays the original art nouveau fittings, colourful mosaics, marble columns and stained glass windows and statues. The extravagant building is built over 18 hot springs, with pools said to be modeled after the baths of Caracalla in ancient Rome. Beneath the Gellért’s spectacular arched glass dome and alongside gushing Zsolnay ceramic fountains, locals socialize in hushed tones or paddle about in the elaborately tiled pools. Taking a soak in this Art Nouveau palace can be compared to taking a bath in a cathedral. The huge Secessionist vestibule is lined with pink marble pillars, floral motifs on the walls and bronze curlicue decorations. Inside, the 33 meter pool is the height of luxury. Lined with marble columns and trailing plants, it really resembles something from the heady days of the Roman Empire. Its retractable glass roof is often opened in summer to let shafts of sunlight in on the mirror of the pool. At one end is a thermal pool with hot jets of healing water spouting from statues. The outdoor wave pool - framed by playful shaped and decorated mosaic walls - was the first of its kind.
