The spectacular szechenyi bath house
the walk up Andrassy street was very nice tree-lines and full of historical houses and at the end was the beautiful
Városliget (city park), which included the bath house. It is lines with several museums and galleries and at the entrance is
Heroes' Square with great monument with dedicated to seven tribes that founded Hungary in 9th century. As we were admiring the place the rain started to pour. Not a big deal since we were going to hang out in a giant mineral bath anyway.
Back to the bath house. Once we figured out how everything work we headed for the outdoor heated mineral pools. after hanging out for awhile Gen went to explore only to come back excited about the rest of the building. The place was enormous and it had room after room of various pools, mineral baths and saunas. One sauna had a stone basin where ice came out to help close your pours after sitting the sauna. There is not an ice covered lake to jump in naked like in Scandinavia
I had my water proof sports camera in my pocket but had no idea what the policy was since I did not see anyone else taking pictures when we got there. So I snuck some pics and video as discretely as possible. (they will be uploaded at a later date since I do not have the proper cord with me to get them off the camera). After awhile I did notice others with camera so I was able to easily take better video and pics. I am really looking forward to seeing all the video I have taken on trip as I have not been able to view them so far.
At night we went to a small restaurant and relaxed on a small street near our apartment. Tomorrow back on the road.
