Rudas Baths are the best thermal baths in Budapest in my opinion, and I’m sure you’ll agree with me. Originally a Turkish bath, Rudas is almost 500 years old and has some stunning architecture throughout that you can admire for hours on end; I think it really sums up Budapest as a city. The best part of Rudas Baths is the rooftop pool featuring an unbeatable panorama of the city. You can float in the centre of the maze surrounded by the bright arches and a beautiful skyline; you won’t find this anywhere else. To top it all off, you can bathe here until 4 am! Is there a better way to end your day? One unique thing about Rudas baths is their certified medicinal water. Doctors throughout Budapest will prescribe a time for patients to soak in the water, so this is the best place to soothe your aches and pains! One thing you will need to check before you go is which days you can enter. Rudas Baths are some of the few in the city which has different days assigned to different genders. At the moment, the baths allow group use on Saturdays and Sundays and are open for women only on Tuesdays and men on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Be sure to check before you go to avoid disappointment, everyone needs to witness the sunset from the rooftop pool!
