Place 9 – Day 2: Budapest – Public Baths & Awesome buildings

We tried to wake up early and ended up getting up around 10am, which isn’t too bad, considering we didn’t sleep for about 35 hours! 

We planned to go to the public baths today so we made that our goal! 

We walked for about an hour or so to get there so we were ready for a relax! 

Before we went in, we found an outdoor barbecue place next to the circus which sold hungarian food! We purchased a Kürtőskalács for a very cheap price! This is similar to a cinnamon bun, but it is baked on an open fire and twisted around a cone! Very tasty! 

It costed about £13 each to go in, so we made our way in and got changed for the nice hot baths! 

We had lockers, but only the staff could unlock and lock them, which was irritating when there were just 2 staff members! 

There were multiple pools and rooms. There was a nice and hot pool, a swimming pool and a warm pool outside. Inside, there were numerous other pools, ranging in temperatures as well as steam rooms and saunas! 

We made sure to make the best use of our time and use everything there! 

We saw a ‘beer sauna’ in which you pay 20€ each (far too expensive) and bathe in water mixed with beer ingredients, but you also get your own beer tap with unlimited beer for 45 minutes! We really wanted to do this, but 40€ was far too expensive for 45 minutes! 

Once we had finished at the baths, we just went for a walk around Hungary! We stopped for a KFC and then just walked and walked! We saw a lot of awesome looking buildings. See some below! 

We had a perfect day and hopped on a bus around 21:00 to head back to the apartment for some sleep!! Whilst we were heading back, Kim decided that we need to visit a ‘Patastery‘ for breakfast tomorrow… Whatever that is! Our feet are killing us! Tomorrow, we’ll be up early and be busy visiting ‘buda’ before leaving on a bus for our next place at 21:00 for a 19 hour bus ride!! 

Please note: The blog will likely be up at a reasonable time tomorrow, either the morning or early evening due to travel. 

Viszlát!
