  1. Hello, when will the reconstruction take approximately? thanks a lot

    • Hello Jan,
      I am afraid the opening date is not confirmed yet. It is also possible that Gellert Spa keeps closed in 2020.
      We recommend you select a different bath or lido. Please find more Budapest Baths on the following page:
      Have a nice holiday in Budapest!

      We are a family from Sweden who are visiting Budapest for the UEFA Euro and have match tickets. Is it possible for is to use your facility?

      Best regards, Charlotte Krantz

      • Hello Charlotte,

        Unfortunately, at the moment, visitors will need to present a valid Covid passport from a country given the green status by the HU government. Sweden is not on the list yet.

        The entry requirements for the thermal baths in Budapest is as follows:
        visitors are to have a valid immunity card issued by the HU government or any of the countries accepted by the HU government, momentarily, mostly South-Eastern European countries including Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Moldova etc. as well as Turkey and Bahrain). The full list of countries whose Covid passport has reached the point of mutual acceptance in the intergovernmental negotiations can be seen here (update on 30th May):

        Regardless of any tests, cards, certificates etc., if a visitor shows any symptoms related to Covid at the entrance of the baths (high temperature etc.) they will be rejected from entry to the baths.

        We hope that in a few months’ time travel and entry procedures will become more transparent and smoothly organised. Until then, thank you for your continued support to minimise the potential spread of the virus.

        • Hello,

          Kindly note that from July 3, 2021 Budapest Baths, including Gellert Spa will no longer require visitors to show a Covid passport before entry. Visitors can attend the thermal baths and spas without a vaccination card / Corona virus passport.

  2. Hello,

    • Hello Ulrika,
