I Wore Prohibited Swimwear to a Budapest Thermal Bath—Here’s What Happened; Carole Rosenblat; Fodor’s

One of the most popular attractions in Budapest, Hungary are the many thermal baths (fed by natural underground mineral springs) that have earned the city the nickname “The City of Baths.” At these spas, you are not allowed to wear modest swimwear, and some women have been asked to leave because their swimsuit is covering most of their body. The spas claim it is for health reasons, but there is also a suspicion that the ban has something to do with Prime Minister Victor Orban’s anti-migrant policies.
