Later, in 1956, Budapest Dagály Spa was expanded with a 50 m. swimming pool. In 1970, the water of the Széchenyi Thermal Spa was directed to Dagály Thermal Spa of Budapest.

There are 10 pools of various forms and temperatures in the pleasant and picturesque surroundings. In 2000, the 2 large-sized thermal sitting pools, situated on the territory of the Baths, were transformed into 4 up-to-date pools and equipped with water filtering and circulation devices. The water temperature in the thermal pool is the highest: 34°C,whereas the 2 swimming pools with their 26°Cwater are excellent for swimming.
In the summer of 2002, besides many other Budapest spas, the Dagály Bath was renovated, and its mushroom pool and kidney-shaped pool were renewed.
