Can't say I've bothered to inform myself much about the history of the place or anything, but the architecture is incredible -- couldn't resist snapping a few shots.
I can't count how many different pools there are, indoors and outdoors -- ranging from 16° to 38°, steam rooms, saunas, mud treatments, massage rooms, etc. My favourite was to sit in the downstairs sauna until I couldn't stand it any more, plunge myself into the 16° pool, then back to the sauna, have a warm shower, then go change and have a beer. You feel weightless.
