The bath has been modernized just recently, the result of which is the fastest slide in the country with a stop watch, and a multimedia slide with music and light effects.

Római Bath

This water source was well know even during the Roman times, but of course, so far back in the days, no one really imagined a bath like this one. In 1930 the joint-stock company Római Fürdő Rt. was founded and thanks to them the bath could open in 1964 and haven’t changed a bit ever since.

Here, three huge slides await the guests, and for the kids and the immatures, there are a really cool, new playground, with open-air fitness equipment, because oil doesn’t go well with an untrained body.

Other extras can also be found in Római: for example a sauna and a steam-bath.
