The Lukács Thermal Bath – one of Budapest’s oldest spas

The Lukács Thermal Bath whose operation dates back to the Turkish era, was the favourite bath of Mustafa pasha. It is said to have one of the most effective medicinal waters of Budapest.

Guests visited from all four corners of the globe and placed marble gratitude plates on the walls of the spa after being cured by their successful therapy. The current fun pool used to be a natural mud-pool that had an area covered by a roof as well, which was the capsule shaped winter mud-lake.

The spa has thermal pools, swimming and fun pools, a wellness area, saunas and various services. There is a drift corridor in the outdoor leisure pool, there are underwater jets, neck shower,
back-massaging jets hidden in the seats, whirlpool, jet-springs, jet-bed and many other water attractions.
