Yesterday it was announced on the Duna Aréna website that the Dagály Baths will reopen immediately, with special reduced admission for the first two days of 1,800 forints. From tomorrow, prices go back to the regular rates of 2,500 forints, and 2,700 forints at weekends. There’s reduced admission for senior citizens, children and families.
Other developments at the Dagály include new, modernised spa facilities and redesigned outdoor pools. Those who wish to use the Duna Aréna warm-up pool should purchase a separate ticket for 800 forints.
Architect Marcel Ferencz was the main creative force behind the Duna Aréna, transforming the Dagály Baths into a contemporary venue worthy of staging the swimming and diving competitions for the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest last year. Design of the new pool complex features an exterior that mirrors and blends in with the Danube.
After a major overhaul, the Duna Aréna reopened to the public in late July, and operates from 10am to 3pm Mondays to Saturdays.
