Gellert Bath is the most famous Art Nouveau thermal baths in Budapest, Hungary as well as in Europe. Gellert Spa, founded in 1918, is soon to be 100 years old, and visiting the bath is indeed a beautiful and historical experience. You can visit the main hall free of charge, or spend a whole day of relaxation in the “Palace of Baths” as Gellert Bath is often referred to.Gellert Baths
