Pools From Around The World: The Széchenyi Medicinal Bath

It is not the landscapes, although the size which makes it so memorable.

It is not the landscapes, although the size which makes it so memorable. The buildings which encircle them and the bathrooms are Neo-Baroque and Renaissance-styled, with paths around the pools teeming with metalwork and sculptures. You gaze upward in ceilings covered with murals and domes decorated with mosaics such as mermaids, goddesses, gods, and also the evolution of agriculture and irrigation Since you recline back in one of the numerous hot tubs.
Swimming pools and spas, installed, when designed and kept well, can be real works of art. However there are very few on the planet which are as amazing as the Széchenyi Medicinal Bath in Budapest, Hungary. The bathrooms are fed by a spring which runs over 4,000 feet deep and measures about 170 degrees. The spring supplies the bathrooms with 1.5 million gallons of water daily. The bathroom complex manages to be imposing and intimate–the pools seem as if they belong in a palace’s courtyard, while many of those indoor bathrooms make you feel as if you’ve discovered a whirlpool bathtub. You could easily spend an whole day in the complex, and it would be worth your while to do. If you have the opportunity don’t miss it. The Széchenyi Bath encompasses 3 pools that are massive and 15 indoor bathrooms. Opened in 1913, square feet are covered by the complex, and is the biggest medicinal bath in Europe. One of our employees was lucky enough to pay a visit to with the bath in 2010, and was absolutely staggered by what he saw.

Over the next few months, this site will occasionally be taking a peek at several Premier-class pools around the globe that we think truly epitomize the beauty of swimming pools, and that capture not only the function of a pool, but the immeasurable value of its own form. If you travel at any frequency, possibly in the United States or abroad, occasionally you encounter a swimming pool or public bathroom that’s awe-inspiring in beauty… and cost. It’s likely to draw on inspiration from such great works of art, although the vast majority of us can’t afford to set up pools which would cost millions of dollars. You can have a bit of it, although you can’t have the Garden of Eden on your backyard.
