The Rudas Thermal Bath was established as early as the 16th century, during the time of the Turkish occupation. Its oldest central part includes an octagonal pool covered by a 10 meter diameter dome. At the end of the 19th century, a therapeutic swimming facility and a sauna was added. The bath also has a complex physiotherapeutic section, as well as a drinking hall, offering drinking cures from three water springs: Hungária, Attila and Juventus. In the extended wing guests can enjoy the benefits of Juventus pool, immersion pool, rooftop pool and two hot water pools.
The bath was built in 1550, and then reconstructed by Pasha Sokoli Mustafa in 1566. Some of the Turkish-period features are still used today: the octagonal pool, the four small corner pools, each with water of a different temperature, and the characteristic Turkish dome.
The thermal water here is slightly radioactive and other properties includes sulphate, calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and a significant amount of fluoride ion. The thermal water were not very hot between 34 to 38 degrees only. Otherwise stated 42 degrees on Gyogymedence bath.
It is compulsory to wear swimwear as the bath are unisex.
Swimming trunks are available for rent/purchase.

The octagonal pool switch either for men or women daily. Be sure to call to check if the octagonal pool is open for your gender.
I was too sick to go up to the rooftop pool, it was extreme cold and super crowded.
