Palatinus Strand is easily one of the oldest water recreational options available in Budapest. It opened as a beach in the year 1919 on the banks of Danube. Soon after that it was converted into an open bath in the year 1921 and till date continues to function as one. It became so popular with people, that it had to be extended in 1937 and today its popularity has grown almost three fold. Palatinus Bath is no more only an open air bath. It has a supply of thermal springs from the Margit Island. It also has playgrounds, parks and slides for kids to play on. You will also come across a large wave pool which is another highlight of this place. It is a great place to come across Hungarians as well as tourists- as it is popular between both the groups.

They have a great kids pool as well as hot springs for grown-ups to soak in. Stake out your place under a tree early, it fills up quickly, but the pools are quite huge and there's plenty of swimming for all. Not as atmospheric as the neoclassical Szécsény, but it gets the job done. Went again this year and it’s even better. The inside pools and got are great. Supposedly heated sidewalks in winter to the outside pools, and I read that the place can handle 15,000!
Modern pools complex on Margaret island. Several outdoor pools....just the right temperatures. Wave pool and rapids....the inner rapids are very strong. Spacious gardens with plenty of sunbeds. Indoor mineral water theraputic pools. Sauna steam and plunge pool. All clean and cared for. Loved it there.
Great place to bring the family for a few hours or most of a day. Entrance fees are reasonable and there are many food options inside. The Mexican place makes the best salsa we've tasted in Europe. There's a pool tile missing here and there but that did not take away from our enjoyment.
Large outdoor bath with pools in different temperatures. Almost empty on a Thursday morning off-season. Far less touristy than the some of indoor baths. Maybe less charming, but better for bathing.
Vast space with a lot of swimming pools and recreation area. Very good mixture for wellness, fitness, real swimming and fun for adults and children. Includes swimming pool with artificial waves and water slide. Very suitable for all ages on a hot day. Strong recommendation. Easily to be reached by bus 26.
