Up to My Earlobes in Hot Water, in Budapest’s Best Bath

The Széchenyi Baths are Budapest’s ultimate thermal spa experience. And before I know it, I’m in my swim trunks and up to my earlobes in hundred-degree water — milky with minerals and steamy with geothermal heat. Feeling the steaming cascade pound and pound and pound against my shoulders, I slip into a meditative trance, losing all track of time and place. It’s the opposite of water torture…it’s water bliss. But it’s comforting to know that the Széchenyi Baths will always be here.
