Underground Wellness

These underground baths are located inside the oldest still excising spa building in town. With the town also being one of the oldest bathing spa resorts of the country. I was quite impressed with its current state. The town is known for its hot springs with natural healing minerals such as sulfur, calcium and magnesium. During the 18th-century a Roman temple and a few baths were found here.

The spa provided thirty private cabinets where visitors could use a bath. The wellness also had a few larger baths. One for the men and one for the woman. I was told there was also on bath reserved for the queen of the empire. She would stay in a luxurious hotel across the street. To visit the spa she used an underground tunnel so crossing the street was not necessary.

The spa had to go through a lot. It suffered from a fire and had to be rebuilt a couple of times along history. It's been abandoned for quite a while now. There is some decay but the overall situation of the building is pretty ok.
