The expected closing date of Római and Pünkösdfürdő baths is 1 September, depending on weather conditions.

Cashless payment is in place at every bath in Budapest, which means that you can only pay by bank card or a prepaid card provided by the cashier for the products bought on the bath’s premises (foods, drinks, swimming suits or other articles, etc). Cash is not accepted. This system is comfortable to use and provides security, since you don’t have to worry about having enough cash on hand or keeping your money safe while bathing. 

Family, sporting and children’s programs and events are provided for your enjoyment at the baths during the summer, with entertainment and sporting opportunities awaiting visitors at all six locations on many weekends.
