Spa throw two millenia

 

Remember the question in the movie ‘The Life of Brian’? – “What have the Romans ever done for us? The Spa! – goes the obvious answer for a Hungarian. And indeed! The history of the spa in Budapest is easy to track all the way back to two millennia. The city’s thermal waters, as popular as ever, have been handed over from generation to generation regardless the dominant power or culture. What the Romans discovered the middle ages carried forward.

What gives the spa its unfading appeal? Choose this tour to find out.
