Király Baths are one of Budapest’s most important Turkish monuments. Arszlán Pasha began its construction in the middle of the 16th century. The dome covered pool has been functioning continuously as a baths.
In the 18th century it came into the possession of the König family – hence its current name
(König = Király = King). It was at this time that the Classicist style wing, containing the present main entrance, was added.
Király Baths’ water supply stems from the springs supplying the Lukács Baths.
