Turkish baths in Budapest
Fortunately, the 150 years of Turkish occupation have left more than bitter memories. It was also the time when the Turkish bathing culture took root in Hungary, thanks to the fact that the Turkish rulers quickly discovered that there were plenty of hot springs in the area.
Its construction was initiated by the Buda Pasha Sokoli Mustafa, who discovered that there were no less than 21 thermal springs in the area.
BATHS OF THE KING OF VELI
It is now almost 500 years old, but the Turkish baths, which have survived from the time of the conquest, have only grown more beautiful with the passage of time. If you want to experience the benefits of hammam in a truly authentic setting, the 36°C octagonal pool at Rudas is the first place to visit!
Built in the second half of the 1560s, the King's Spa was a kind of Plan B for the Turks in case Buda came under siege. It gave them a hammam within the castle walls to meet all their needs, and they didn't have to give up a minute's physical and mental refreshment.
