Things I Hope to Experience on Our Visit to Budapest

Jul 25, 2018

Our Imperial Cities tour is chocked full of amazing things to explore, yet there is so much more.  Below are some things you might want to check out during your free time in Budapest.

 

 

Thermal Springs

Thermal Springs 
Budapest has more thermal springs than any other capital city in the world. An amazing 70 million liters of thermal waters rise to the surface daily. The hot springs have given birth to dozens of medicinal baths and to a bathing culture dating back to Roman times.

Hospital in Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum

Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum

The Hospital in the Rock Nuclear Bunker Museum (Sziklakórház Atombunker Múzeum) is part of an approximately 6-mile (10-km) stretch of interconnected caves and cellars beneath Buda Castle Hill. The museum is dedicated to a former secret emergency hospital and nuclear bunker.

Statue of Anonymous

The Statue of Anonymous in Budapest’s City Park
Legend has it that touching the pen of the statue of "Anonymous" in Budapest's City Park will bless you with great writing abilities. You may not believe it, but the shiny surface of the pen suggests that many still do.

Thermal Cave

The Labyrinthine ‘Underground Flower Garden’ Caves Beneath Budapest

Beneath the city of Budapest lies a hidden subterranean world that reveals an unknown chapter of the city's famous spa culture.  With over 80 geothermal springs and around 200 caves found to date, Budapest is home to the world's largest known thermal cave system. While most are familiar with the city's steaming thermal baths, some of which date back as far as the Ottoman occupation in the 15th century, the source of Budapest's thermal waters is a curiosity in itself.
