Losing and winning

The Szechenyi thermal baths is the most popular bathhouse in Budapest and one of the largest in Europe. An extravagant, public pool. The most basic entrance fee gives you access to a locker and any of the indoor and outdoor pools. The massages cost extra.

What you’re really paying for is access to see the inside.

Most tourists bought tickets just to take pictures. But I came to Szechenyi for another reason.

I came to play chess.
