Szechenyi Medicinal Spa in Budapest

This is the largest Spa in Europe and it is beautiful and sprawling, it makes the Moose Jaw spa in Saskatchewan look tiny.  Szechenyi is on the Pest side of Budapest and has around 15 pools but I might have miscounted.  They vary in temperature and mineral concentration.  Our favourite was the large outdoor 38 degree pool.  Dax and Darren settled in one spot and played Chess.  I had to drag them to the different pools inside and outside.  Another favourite was the current pool which dragged you around the pool that was fun.  We spent 3 hours there and could have stayed longer but it was already past Dax’s bed time.  We all slept very well that night.  We wanted to go to the Gellert and Rudas Spas but ran out of time; these spas are on the Buda side of the river.
