Some Facts about Budapest

Budapest has more thermal water springs than any other capital city in the world

Hungary has an incredible abundance of underground hot water sources, so there is no surprise that Budapest is considered the thermal bath capital of the world. There are dozens of spas and baths in the Hungarian capital, some of which are housed in magnificent buildings (Szechenyi Baths, Gellert Baths, Kiraly Baths). The chemical composition of the waters differs from bath to bath and is absolutely unique in the world.

The famous ‘Ruin Pubs’ have become live history.

A few years ago, a group of young people managed to exchange the promise of cheap rent, for the permission to turn abandoned houses in the city centre into bars, decorating them with whatever they could find on the streets. The result has been incredible, giving life to the famous ‘Ruin Bars,’ Soviet style houses with gardens that regularly hold parties and concerts.

About Bem Mozi

In 1908, the movie theater, called Helios, has undergone many changes over the years: it has been renamed several times, nationalized (at that time it was renamed) and closed in 2009. Bem’s life brought a new turning point in January 2016, as the cinema opened its doors again and returned to its (almost) original function.

What’s new is that it now works as a “repertory cinema”, which means they only play movie classics in their original language, subtitled.  Operators are constantly planning night-time screenings and themed movie theaters.
