Lukacs Bath

Lukacs Bath is one of the historical thermal baths in Budapest, and is a good value for money, especially in 2013, when the Budapest Cards include a free entry to the Lukacs Baths (open from Monday to Sunday).

Lukacs Baths has become more known among locals and tourists in the last few months as the party venue of the Saturday night party series. More info about Budapest Lukacs Bath Magic Bath Party series: laser shows, video projections, electronic music, and lots of folks enjoying a Saturday night party (see: Budapest Bath Parties)

Lukacs Bath is one of the favorite baths of locals, and until 2011, it has almost exclusively been visited by locals only. Due to recent changes, the bath has got more attention (parties, Budapest Card free bath entry inclusion).

Opening Hours of Lukacs Baths:

Mon – Sun: 6 am – 9 pm

Even though the architecture and facilities in Lukacs Baths are more modest than the popular Szechenyi Bath or the famous Gellert Bath, both of which are ornate palaces, Lukacs Bath has its own strengths and specialties, like the many Gratitute Tablets or stone plaques on its walls saying thank you for the healing power of the geothermal waters, or the Himalayan Salt Room for curing respiratory problems, or the Weight Bath used for stretching the back, treating spinal injuries, etc. Detailed info about the Lukacs Bath Pools.

The history of Lukacs Bath reveals that the geothermal hot spring waters coming from deep underground have been used by the St John’s knights in the 12th century, later by the Turkish dignitaries and soldiers in the 16th century, while in the 1880s the bath has been completely redesigned and rebuilt as a spa hotel  and wellness center. In the 1970s, the bath has officially become a water hospital to treat locomotive diseases and prescribed as physiotherapy.

The many marble Thank You plaques have been placed here after the successful aqua therapies, from the 1890s onwards. Most of them got broken in the World War 2 unfortunately.

The bath, named after St Luke (Szt Lukacs Gyogyfurdo) is located close to the Margaret Island, a few min walk from Margaret Bridge on the Buda side with some Budapest hidden gems in its vicinity (16th century Turkish attractions, or a cave under the Buda hills called Szemlohegyi Cave.

Lukacs Bath may give a small taste of why Budapest is the City of Baths, but if you want to experience something even more magnificent, we strongly recommend trying Szechenyi Baths or Gellert Spa too.
