We have been eagerly waiting for the re-opening of the Dagály Bath and Danube Arena complex that is awaiting visitors with the biggest swimming pool arena in Budapest. After a temporary closure, the bath complex was opened again.

Dagály Bath has originally been built in 1948 near Árpád bridge, in the 13th district and quickly became one of the most popular baths in the city. Its original name was ’Liberty Bath’, but due to its location close to Dagály street, it has always been called Dagály Bath by the public.

The Bath has many things to offer: among other possibilities, one can enjoy the magnificent thermal bath that makes Budapest truly unique for foreigners.

The Bath has recently been closed down temporarily from the public due to the construction of the Danube Arena, that was built a complement to the Bath area. The Arena was designed for the 2017 FINA World Championships with a capacity to host more than 10,000 visitors.

Dagály has benefited from the construction of the Arena in many ways: renovated swimming pools, new wellness facilities and bicycle storage space have been added to the facilities.

However, the renovation of the Bath has not been without hurdles: the plans for the 2017 re-opening failed, and the construction works have been prolonged by several months.

Nevertheless, it seems that it was worth waiting, as the Dagály Bath is better than ever, and its prices are proportionate, too.

Currently, only out-door facilities are open to visitors, which will be shortly followed by the wellness and medical divisions. On the opening day, reduced prices were available for visitors, and the full prices are also beneficial compared to entry fee to Palatinus and other baths.

The entry fees will be as follows:

During weekdays:

Adult: HUF 2.500 (~EUR 8)
Children (aged between 3-14), retired and student: HUF 2.100 (~EUR 7)
Family ticket I. (2 adults, 2 children): HUF 7.100 (~EUR 21)
Family ticket II. (1 adult, 2 children): HUF 4.600 (~EUR 14)

During weekends:

Adult: HUF 2.700 (~EUR 8)
Children (aged between 3-14), retired and student: HUF 2.300 (~EUR 7)
Family ticket I. (2 adults, 2 children): HUF 7.700 (~EUR 24)
Family ticket II. (1 adult, 2 children):  HUF 5.000 (~EUR 15)

Opening hours: M-Su 8:00-20:00.
