Király Thermal Bath

Despite its notoriety, it still feels like a bit of a hidden secret, making it an ideal spot to dip. To get the best experience I’d reccomend starting off in the central chamber. This is the medium hot pool (36 degrees celsius) and is where you will find most of the bathers at any given time. Next alternate with intervals between the three other temperature gradients – 20 degree cold pool, 40 degree hot pool and 32 degree lukewarm. Following that it is on to the steam room and the double chambered sauna with a trip to the cold pool between each. There is also ‘the bucket’ outside which is a lovely and easily missed 5 person pool in the central courtyard of the Kiraly complex. The best place in all of Budapest for stimulating conversation with a close friend.
