Resort.id – The Széchenyi, Fun Baths And Therapies at the Largest Hot Springs in Europe. When the body starts to get tired after a day of walking in Europe, it is good to relax.
In Budapest there is a hot spring tour place that is just right to take off fatigue by soaking in the pool.
This pool is not an ordinary swimming pool but is also useful as a place of natural medicine.
The Széchenyi hot spring is the largest hot spring in Europe, located at the north end of the city park, Budapest.
This pool of water is obtained from two hot springs which are rich in minerals such as sulfate, calcium, megnesium, bicarbonate, fluoride and metaboric acid in large quantities.
These minerals are believed to have properties for the treatment of diseases such as arthritis, and other joint disorders.
Because the water is always hot all year long, this pool is the right place to relax and enjoy winter.
The Széchenyi Bath is a favorite place for locals and international tourists alike.
This swimming pool was built in 1881 and stands tall on Nador Island precisely in the middle of the lake from the City Park. The hot water supply is obtained from well drilling carried out by Hungarian engineers who are experts in the geothermal field and also drilling well named Vilmos Zsigmondy. At first the pool was just a small artesian pool which was then crowded by local councilors so that the idea of building a palace around the pool was more comfortable for a place of relaxation.
Then in 1913 a magnificent building with Neo-Baroque architecture was built in the bathing area. Not only that the size of the pool was also expanded to 50 meters and continued to expand until finally it became a super jumbo pond. In the 1960s construction continued with setting up a hospital that specialized in outpatient care for physiotherapy.
To this day the Széchenyi hot spring has 18 different pools with varying water temperatures, including a very large open-air swimming pool. The unique scenery that is often seen in this bath is that there is a group of tourists who are busy relaxing while playing chess in the pool. So I want to go on vacation to Budapest.
