|One outside view of the Széchenyi Thermal Bathes|
|We entered the building here|
Just inside the building is an impressive statue
Looking up, you see an equally imipressive cupola
Not fancy enough? How about this?
|Dishing out some Forints - currency of the realm - to gain admission|
One we bought our tickets, you walked to a long row of changing rooms.
Jo found an unoccupied door and disappeared. There were no more vacant rooms so I knocked on Jo's to join her. There we changed into our swim outfits. A speedo for Jo, shorts and tee for me.
|Up the stairs to a locker room were we stashed our gear|
The changing rooms had the entry door we came in, and on the other side, a second door that lead to a room with co-ed lockers. There were no free lockers so we went up a flight of wooden stairs to another locker room.
Then back down the stairs to the magic door to the bathes.
|Stepping through the door to this magical view of mineral waters.|
|Like the other two inner pools this one is full of healthful, hot mineral spring water|
I waked gingerly though the water for fear of slipping, then through a second door into sunlight. Rushing to the wall at the top of the stairs I saw...
|A wonderland of mineral pools and bathers|
|Find Waldo, I mean, find Jo|
Incidentally, just outside the Bathes, I spotted this beautiful object d'art... a Budapestian manhole cover.
Jo drove us back to the apartment so I got to window gawk.

|Boarding the double decker night tour bus|
Your 300 Forints gets you a seat at the top of the bus and a pair of ear phones. The earphones plug into the little box of the seat in front. Voila! There is a choice of hearing the tour info a dozen languages, from English, Japanese or German to the local Magyar language.
|Stay relaxed seated!|
