Gellért Bath is a popular and exquisite bath and hotel complex next to Gellért Hill. The building faces the Danube in the heart of Budapest, next to the famous central market on the other side of the river.
The Gellért bath complex was built between 1912 and 1918 in Art Nouveau style. References to healing waters in this location are found from as early as the 13th century. A hospital was located on this site during the Middle Ages. During the reign of the Ottoman Empire, baths were also built on this particular site. The „magical healing spring“ used the Turkish during the 16th and 17th centuries. The bath was called Sárosfürdő („muddy” bath), because the mineral mud settled at the bottom of pools.
