‘Healing Powers’ And Free Speech At 12th Century Budapest Bath House

Healing powers and free speech have drawn many to the 12th century Budapest bath house. Bathers say that this is a place that makes them feel calm and care free and is a reason why Hungarian bath culture has been in service for centuries. The Lukacs complex is a favorite for Hungarian locals, situated on a hot spring dense with minerals whose healing powers attracted the first bath house in the 12th century. Artists and intellectuals gathered here in the 70’s and 80’s as it became known as a island of free speech.
