Old Gunpowder Mill

Resembling a bathhouse this is actually the site of a former gunpowder mill that was used by the Turkish during their occupation of the city. It was powered by the thermal waters beneath the labyrinthine series of caves in subterranean Budapest. The Ottomans were pioneers of the use of gunpowder and it is a big reason as to how they managed to conquer and hold Budapest for such a long time. Although you can’t head inside, it’s a pretty cool spot steeped in history.
