The Art Nouveau thermal baths at the Hotel Gellért in Buda are absolutely stunning. But taking photos with all the half nude Hungarian men with their mustaches, lounging in the waters was challenging to say the least.

All that I managed to sneak was a few shots of the swimming pool between the women’s and men’s baths.

To go to Budapest and not partake of their waters is a crime. Go and relax.
