Definitely the most impressive abandoned bathhouse I’ve ever entered. Actually, I’ve visited the location three times in 24 hours. This because the first time somebody told us to leave. The second time the sun was too bright. The third time I finally succeeded. It took me a lot of effort, but all worth it of course.
The building itself was built in the late 19th-century with around 30 individual private cabins and 2 large pools built of red marble. Designed by a Hungarian architect for the Austrian Emperor who after his visit noted that the town is “the most beautiful resort on the continent”. His wife; the queen wrote down in her diary that the “Baths are a distinct and delightful presence”.
Sadly, at the end of the 20th-century, the buildings got neglected and have been decaying ever since. Luckily, A group of young people fell in love with the historical beauty and started a project in fight for the preservation and restoration of the health resort. Lucky to see that many people have supported the project and the renovations within the town started.
