From the introduction to the Budapest Thermal Baths tour:

Budapest has been blessed with large natural deposits of underground thermal water, which make the capital "the City of Spas". For thousands of years, people have been bathing in the healing waters here. The Ottoman Turks, who occupied Buda during the 15th and 16th centuries, were especially avid bathers, and they left behind spectacular old spas that still stand today. Other bath houses in the city were constructed later. This tour takes you on a walk past the best baths of Buda, while also steering you to some gems in Pest. The goal of this tour is to give you some history and background, but much more importantly, to help you get in the water!
