Not only is the location of The Rudas Baths ideal, in-between Gellért Hill and the Danube, but it is also an extraordinary relic from the Turkish period of the country’s history. At the epicenter of the facility is the octagonal pool, which is illuminated by a gigantic cupola, almost 30 feet in diameter.
The structure is supported by eight pillars. Apart from this pool, there are several others including a swimming pool and six medicinal pools, the water of which range from 61°F to 108°F (16-42°C) The water itself is slightly radioactive thermal water containing nitrates, sulphates and calcium-magnesium-hydrogen-carbonates, as well as fluoride ions in significant quantities.
The work on the building was finished in 2005, so it is now completely renovated. Traditionally only men were allowed into Turkish baths, but since December they have also been open to women on certain days of the week.
From 1936 up until 2005 the oldest, Turkish baths were open to men only. Since December 2005, in order to comply with a sex discrimination ruling, they have also been open to female bathers on certain days of the week.
