The Gellért Baths and Hotel were built in 1918, as a Turkish bath, but at times it also functioned as a hospital, while in 1927 a wave pool has been added, followed by the effervescent bath 1934.

The interior is authentic Art Nouveau, consisting of colorful mosaics, marble columns, stained glass windows and statues, making this one of the most amazingly and impressively designed baths in Budapest.

The Gellért Baths were considered an immediate international success, and was even the backdrop to a 1931 political scandal involving the Cuban Dr. Ramon Costello, was refused entry into the Baths, as some white American visitors objected to his presence.

At the time, racial segregation in America was still in place, which they believed gave grounds for this request. Costello took the matter in front of the City Council, who ruled in his favor.
