The 'Pearl of the Danube' is in fact two cities, Buda and Pest. It is the capital of Hungary and has population close to two million.

After travelling through four cities in two weeks I'll be ready to relax and Budapest has just the place, the Gellert Baths. The apparent healing waters of the area have supported baths at the site since the Ottoman empire. The current building was completed in 1918 in the Art Nouveau style.

Much more than a swimming pool, the complex contains thermal pool, plunge pools effervescent pools and an open air pool. It seems very Roman, with people lounging and spending their time bathing and will be a perfect end to my trip.
