Széchenyi fürdő is one of Europe’s greatest spa complexes. A physiotherapeutical department, run as part of an outpatient hospital, in addition to the medicinal water and the lovely surroundings, ensure the healing for visitors. This spa is not only extraordinary for its medicinal water and the large area it occupies, but is also special for the care manifested in the architecture of its facilities; the sculptures and glass mosaics decorating the spa were made by Hungary’s leading artists. The spacious and sunny pool halls bear a touch of the Roman fondness for spas, and the tub bath reflects the signs of the Greek and Scandinavian bath cultures. These are shown in the saunas, baths and steam rooms available at the different departments. The present building of the spa was completed in 1913. The Széchenyi swimming pool was built in 1927, and following that it was converted to the winter season, it is open to visitors all year long. Also in 1927, a bath department and a complete physiotherapeutical department were added as part of an outpatient hospital. (From: spa.hu)

again, you are showing us some new and interesting places of Budapest. Loving this series.
looking at this building, I would never ever have thought this was a Spa! Looks like some type of Government building.
the photo is a tad dark, but i'm not going to complain too much about that because its SO easily fixed.
lovely composition, classic, elegant.
nice to see different views of the city

the weak luminosity of the photo creates a special atmosphere and an interesting effect of chiaroscuro on the gardens and on the splendid architecture which you offer us by means of a good framing.
I like the graphical power and the beauty of the colors, that they provide a high level of quality to your composition.

buona l'ampia inquadratura sulle tre monumentali parti che compongono l'edificio.
Mi piace l'effetto del luci-ombre.

Great keen eyes, a very lively shot that really stands out in rich colors with great filter effects. Full of vibrancy and cleverly composed, a centrally filled frame with the prominent buildings dominate so superbly and lots of attractive elements to influence viewers' eyes. Amazing garden in the fg as it creates a visual feast to the eyes and a real treat of colors, subtle angled light and contrast. Great!
