Budapest, the capital of Hungary, is a major centre with many thermal baths open to the public. The Danube follows the geological fault separating the Buda hills from the Great Plains and over 40 million litres of warm mineral water gush forth daily from more than 120 thermal springs.

Since we are in the city, it would be a good idea to get ourselves soak, especially today was the rare ‘women only’ day for Rudas Bathhouse. Rudas Bath is a Turgish bathhouse which located on the Buda side of Erzsebet Bridge, was built by the Turks in 1566 and it retain a strong Turkish atmosphere.

The thermal bath was used to be exclusively by men. Only very recently it dedicates certain hours (perhaps 2 times) a week exclusively for women.
