The Gellért Bath Budapest

The Gellért Bath Budapest

The Gellért Bath is one of the best examples of Budapest's vibrant bathing culture. Built in 1911 in Art Nouveau style, the bath and hotel on the Buda side of the Liberty Bridge offers a glimpse into the bathing culture and architecture of the early 20th century. Construction of the current bath complex began during the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. When it was completed, the hotel was the most luxurious building in all of Budapest and the bath complex was the most modern of its kind in all of Europe. The management of the hotel and the spa attached extreme importance to being a European leader, which is why, for example, the management of the kitchen was entrusted to the Gundel family, one of the most influential gastronomic dynasties of the time.

The Gellért Bath is not only one of the most magnificent baths in the whole of Budapest, it is also a symbol of Budapest architecture of the early 20th century and captivates with unique architectural elements and decorations. All the sculptures and stained glass windows of the building were created by famous contemporary artists. In the former washrooms for men and women, visitors can admire beautiful ceramics made in the Zsolnay Porcelain Manufactory in Pécs. Guests of the bath can relax in the swimming pools, a sauna and a steam bath, and in summer they can sunbathe in the associated park at the foot of Gellért Hill. Thanks to its composition, the thermal water of the bath is particularly suitable for the treatment of joint problems, spinal diseases and circulatory problems. The Gellért Bath is also a popular filming location. Scenes for several Hungarian and international productions have already been shot against the magnificent backdrop of the indoor and outdoor areas.
