Budapest is also one of the few places where you can experience traditional Turkish baths dating back to 16th and 17th centuries.

There are a couple of baths very close to the conference venue: Gellért and Rudas are practically within walking distance, while Lukács, and Király are just a few tram stops away. Those who stay in the city longer will also love Palatinus beach, situated on Margaret Island, and Római beach in Óbuda.
