The centre of Rudas Baths was built in the 1560s, during the Turkish occupation. The most beautiful part of the baths is the cupola and the octagonal pool underneath which takes one back to the Middle Ages. The light filtering through the tiny openings of the cupola makes the atmosphere of the Turkish baths even more unique. The thermal swimming pool was added in the 19thcentury.
Not long time ago, the recently renovated Rudas Baths could only be visited by men: however, nowadays men and women are admitted on different days, whereas on weekends the baths are open to both sexes.
The special Rudas Cinetrip night party combines old, black and white movies, audiovisual effects, contemporary music played by DJs and the unique atmosphere of a Turkish bath.
