Budapest: the Gellert

The Gellert pool and spa was where I spent most of three of the five days I was in Budapest. It doesn't look it from these photos, as they were taken right at the end of the day, but Budapest was scorching hot the whole time we stayed. The only place to be was by the pool.

The Gellert is famous for its thermal baths, where you can bathe in water that has shot up hot and rich straight from the center of the earth. You cannot take photos in the thermal section however, I think because quite a lot of the older, more local ladies like to get in the nude as they bathe.

The ladies in the last picture are carved into the wall at the entrance of the spa...
