The area of the Római Bath, one of the most popular baths in Budapest, was a known water source as early as in the Roman age. The district around the springs was considered sacred and archaeologists have even found the base walls of a sanctuary here. The latest diggings revealed traces of catchment and details of constructions - related archaeological assessment is in progress.

In 1930 the joint-stock company Római Fürdő Rt. was founded. The refurbished bath was opened in 1964, and it has preserved its original layout every since. In 2000, three pools of the open-air bath were modernised: the pools were equipped with water filtration-recirculation devices. The open-air pool was transformed in a fancy pool with slides, neck showers and bubble bath, while and the children's pool became a playing paradise.

The bath is still enchanting; it is mostly visited by young people and families today. It also has a sauna and a steam cabin, plus numerous catering facilities.
