I mentioned in a previous post, that one of the highlights of my month-long trip in Europe was bicycle riding along the Danube and stopping at wineries along the way. The Szechenyi Baths was also a highlight for me and some of my fellow travelers. The Szechenyi Baths were so beautiful and the thermal mineral water so relaxing, after all of the walking, lugging of suitcases, and mental challenges encountered on the trip. In fact, some of my group went back later for round two!
With fifteen indoor baths of varying temperature and three outdoor, you’re sure to melt away that tension!
After soaking for a while, we went back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our day’s activities. We began with a tour of the imperial Parliament Building. It’s the third largest Parliament Building in Europe.
The interior was stunning! I love this red and white carpet…
This creative outdoor memorial to the holocaust victims, known as the “Shoes on the Danube”, is located in front of the Parliament Building to the right of it, if you’re looking at the building standing along the River.
We’ll explore Budapest’s Castle District tomorrow!
