Ready, Steady, Full Steam Ahead to Budapest Spas

The capital city of Hungary, Budapest is one of Europe’s most attractive cities and arguably Europe’s most fascinating thermal spa city with more than 15 thermal baths and spas to choose from: Széchenyi, Gellért, Rudas, Lukács and Király, just to name some of the most popular and historic ones.

These Baths offer a wide range of services and almost all provide steam rooms for the health conscious spa tourists.

Steam rooms have been used for hundreds of years to improve blood circulation, rejuvenate skin and relieve joint and muscle tension, treat asthma and coughs, alleviate non-acute rheumatic complaints. The steam bath in one of the spas of Budapest does not only promote your health but relaxes and revitalizes you and renews your energy. A great advantage of the steam bath lies in its highly beneficial effect on the skin, a feature particularly appreciated by women. The moist heat cleanses the skin intensively, stimulates the subcutaneous blood flow, opens the pores, removes dead skin and impurities and leaves the skin feeling soft, clean and silky smooth.

There are many things to consider if you plan on trying a steam bath in one of Budapest spas. First, be careful to stay in the steam bath for no more than 15-20 minutes at a time to avoid overheating. Symptoms of too much heat: dizziness, rapid heartbeat or excessive thirst. Be sure to drink lots of water and eat salty snacks afterwards so your body can recover from the exertion. Also, make sure not to eat any large meals beforehand and drink plenty of water. Finally, be prepared to wear a loose, cotton wrap. Wearing tight clothing, like a swimsuit, will interfere with temperature regulation and sweating.
