The lower half of the Upper Lakes is the most striking area in the park.

In the late afternoon we are in for a treat as we visit one of the top Budapest Baths- Szechenyi Medicinal Spa and Swimming Pool     
This spa is not only extraordinary for its medicinal water and the large area it occupies, but is also special for the care manifested in the architecture of its facilities; the sculptures and glass mosaics decorating the spa were made by Hungary's leading artists.
The spacious and sunny pool halls bear a touch of the Roman fondness for spas, and the tub bath reflects the signs of the Greek and Scandinavian bath cultures. These are shown in the saunas, baths and steam rooms available at the different departments.

Celebrate in Budapest on our last night!
