The City of Spas

   
Budapest, Hungary

Budapest is known as home to more thermal water sites than anywhere in the world. From the time Emperor Marcus Aurelius built the first thermal baths and the Ottoman Pashas of Buda added the hammams that are still used today, Hungarians and travellers from all over the world have been flocking to the “International Spa City” to reap the healing benefits of its mineral-rich waters.

Emerging from this abundant spa culture is the renowned skincare line Omorovicza, which uses Hungarian water as the basis for its anti-ageing serums and lotions. With the help of a Nobel prize-winning lab, American Margaret Dickerson and her husband Stephen de Heinrich de Omorovicza harnessed the skin-perfecting properties of the mineral-rich mud and healing waters, then combined them with the latest advances in mineral cosmetology.

To discover the health benefits of Budapest’s thermal waters, visitors and tourists alike can visit the outdoor Gellert and Széchenyi bathhouses, or get a full Omorovicza treatment at the Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest.
