Immerse yourself in a day of relaxation and cultural exploration with the Széchenyi Thermal Spa & Pálinka Museum combo ticket. Széchenyi Bath, the largest thermal spring bath complex in Budapest and throughout Europe, is the height of European elegance. Built in 1913 in a captivating Neo-baroque style, the spa has a rich history, evolving from private steam baths to a vast complex featuring 3 outdoor and 15 indoor pools. But the experience doesn't end at the spa; it extends into the heart of Hungarian culture with an optional guided tour inside the Pálinka Museum. After your rejuvenating day at the spa, venture into the city center to savor the flavors of the “Hungarian spirit”. Hungary's well-known fruit-based liquor, Pálinka, is deeply ingrained in the culture of the country. Unlike whiskey or vodka, it is exclusively crafted from a variety of fruits, resulting in a uniquely aromatic profile. Gain insights into Hungary's Pálinka Act of Parliament, a testament to the country's commitment to regulating and preserving the production and quality of the spirit. The museum provides a deeper understanding of the craftsmanship and heritage behind this iconic drink. Reserve your Széchenyi Thermal Spa & Pálinka Museum combo ticket now for the perfect blend of relaxation and cultural discovery.
