    Night bathing at Rudas thermal spa

    January 3, 2020 in Hungary ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    Tonight we drank a few coffees to stay awake for the 10pm to 4am night session at the Rudas baths.
    The original Turkish baths were built 450 years ago and it now has a panorama open air spa on the rooftop with gorgeous views along the River Danube and to the cliff face behind.
    It was so cold on the rooftop that the staff were scraping away the ice forming on the walkway but the temperature of the water in the spa was perfectly warm.
    The walk home in the early hours of the morning was freezing cold (minus 3 degrees) and foggy but the city buildings were still illuminated beautifully.
