The wonderful capital city of Hungary, Budapest, is an amazing historic city full of adventures and exquisite sites and places to be explored. It is a miraculous land, indeed. To be frank, Budapest is a major tourist attraction in the European Continent. It attracts millions of tourists and foreigners from all around the world throughout the year. It is especially famous for its authentic Hungarian food, historic sites, architectural masterpieces, and of course, its world-famous, globally recognized thermal baths and spas.
There are many thermal baths in the city of Budapest that entertain not only locals of the city but also the tourists seeking for adventure. There are countless thermal baths in the city; one well-known thermal bath complex is Dagaly, Budapest. This thermal bath is located at the Pest foot of Árpád Bridge in Budapest.
Dagaly Bath was originally opened in 1948. However, later on around 1956 like some other thermal baths of the city, Dagaly was also expanded with a 50-meter swimming pool. The base of its water at that time was provided by a well bored in 1944. This finally made it possible to secure the efficient use of the thermal waters, which is found under the bed of the famous River Danube of Budapest. In 1970, the water of the Széchenyi Thermal Bath was directed to Dagaly Bath, which as a result, raised it to the status of a thermal bath. Ever since then, Dagaly has provided a complete range of medical services to its visitors and guests ensuring comfort and relaxation. The 25-meter long swimming pool was later opened in 1983. This pool consisted of an efficient water filter and circulation system and a tent or canvas roof. Currently, there are ten different pools of various forms and different temperatures in the pleasant, aesthetic, and overall picturesque surroundings of the thermal bath complex. In 2000, the two large-sized thermal sitting pools situated on the territory of the Dagaly Bath were amended into four new, up-to-date pools and were equipped with new and efficient water filtering and circulation devices. These are nowadays used as children’s pool, thermal sitting pool, fancy pool, and teaching pool. Each pool offers a unique experience and helps to facilitate the guests of Dagaly. The fancy pool here provides a vast variety of facilities to the visitors such as a whirling corridor, an effervescent bed, a whirlpool, neck showers, geysers, and even splashing sunbathing. In 2002 during the summer, the mushroom pool and the kidney-shaped pool were redesigned and renovated. Out of these, the kidney-shaped pool was renovated to be equipped with a wave-making machine that produced individual concentric waves that would simulate the roar of the sea and enhance the experience. In 2017, a new complex was also opened here to add to the excitement; this is the Duna Arena, which is the venue that hosted the FINA World Aquatics Championships. It has only recently been reopened for the public visitors of Dagaly, mainly for athletes and hobby swimmers. The Duna Arena of Dagaly includes a 50 meter and a 25-meter long pool, a diving pool, and a gym.
The water of the Dagaly bath is comprised of the natural hot spring water of Budapest that is enriched with calcium, magnesium, hydrogen-carbonate, and sulfate-chloride and it also contains sodium and a significant content of fluoride ions. All of this makes the water all the more relaxing, meditative, and enhances its healing properties. This thermal healing water of Dagaly is suggested for the treatment of patients that suffer from degenerative joint diseases, chronic and sub-acute arthritis, and orthopedic and post-accident treatments as well. It has been proven highly beneficial for such cases because of the temperature of the water and the natural healing substances that it is enriched with.
