Weather & Bath Parties
The party is on, even it rains or snows unless there is totally impossible weather (which happened once on a summer thunder-stormy night with tons of lightening). The thermal water creates a thick warm steam cloud over the outdoor pools, which are surrounded by 4 walls of the bath building, cushioning the warm air in Szechenyi Bath. You go inside the pool in the heated building and swim outside in the hot spring channel to the outdoor pool. The warm thermal water wraps you well.
When are bath parties in Szechenyi Bath?
Bath parties are available almost every month in the city of Budapest, from February to December in Szechenyi Bath. The party organizers reserve the right to change the venue if needed. There have been parties in Rudas Bath too.
Spa Waters of Budapest Sparties
The hot spring waters of Lukacs Bath are supplied by thousand-year-old geothermal springs. In the 12th century, the Knights Hospitaller used these waters to cure patients. In the 16th century, the invading Turkish soldiers, pashas conquered Buda Castle and built their wonderful baths along the river Danube (Rudas Bath, Kiraly Bath, Veli Bej Bath), for ritual bathing, medicinal treatments, relaxation and meditation. The waters are recommended for healing joint problems, tiredness and other locomotive diseases.
The present building of Lukacs Baths is a 19th-century thermal bath complex, which has recently been restored. You will find numerous marble plaques on the walls of the bath, which are Gratitude Plaques (like in churches, after healing).

The winter edition of ‘Szecska’ is called ‘Magic Bath’ at Szechenyi Baths. The regular Magic Bath parties are a lot more affordable than the special event Cinetrip parties, which are usually once or twice a year (e.g. the pre-New Year’s Eve Bath Party)
“Well, hello, gorgeous, are you coming to the Magic Bath Party? I’m donning my party speedo.”
“Sure, honey, just a sec, I’ll just grab my bikini and flip-flops, get a cheap air flight to Budapest, and spend the most awesomest night in the geothermal tub”
Szecska bath parties, known as sparties at Szechenyi Bath are extremely popular at Szechenyi Bath in the summertime. But you should not be stranded in winter either. The biggest of all Magic Bath Parties in Budapest is a special edition on December 30, 2020: a Cinetrip Budapest Party in December with loads of awesome shows, the best DJs, etc. It is a pricier one-off magic bath party. Cinetrip Bath Party 2020 (Entry fee: approx. 50 Euros, Duo pack €180)
The winter season of the Bath Parties used to be held in Lukacs Bath, but from 2018 all Parties take place in Szechenyi Baths.
History of Budapest Bath Parties
The idea of a party in a thermal bath was born in 1994 by L. Laki Laszlo, who later became the founder of Cinetrip. The first Sparty (however not under this name yet) was held in Szechenyi Baths – but only for a bigger group of friends of the organisers.
Regular Sparties for the public audience started in 1998 in Rudas Bath (and occasionally in Gellert Spa Kiraly and Lukacs Baths).
The secret of the huge success of the Sparty is not merely that it’s the only bath party in the world, but its unique music and the visual world too – featuring video projection mapping. Video projection mapping (the newest visual genre of the 21st century) is a special projection technology that uses different objects (for example buildings, in this case) as a display surface.
Lukacs Baths used to be the home of winter Bath Parties, but in 2018 the bigger Szechenyi Baths became the permanent venue due to high demand and increased popularity of the Sparty series.
