Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

Excellent and unique facilities, though the entrance area is drab. Once you've paid the entrance fee (staff speak no English), negotiated the turnstile, paid the (refundable) locker fee, and found the corridor to the outdoor pool, all is worthwhile. It's -13ºC outside, now, but the water is a comfortable 27ºC, clear, uncrowded, and no chlorine. Hungarians are keen swimmers - the best time for a 'quiet' swim is between 6 and 10 AM, when you should have a lane almost to yourself.
Buy your ticket at the ticket window. Take your ticket to the men's (left side) or ladies' (right side) locker room turnstile, scan your ticket and pass through the turnstile where you will be offered a lock for the locker room for a refundable 1,000 Ft. Return the lock when you're done as you head back out through the turnstile. No one speaks any English, and NONE of the signage has any English translations.

The changing rooms have undergone a major renovation; now, when you purchase your entrance you get a bracelet for entrance and the lockers, a regular modern feature. The showers are new, too.

Swimming is still fine in the outdoor pool; it's not busy, even on a sunny afternoon.

Great pool!
[June, 2019]
I agree that the swimming here is great, and at a time of year when many outdoor pools are closed.

Entrance and locker update: The reception desk in front of you when you enter does not do pool tickets. Instead, there is a window in the wall on the left. You will receive an electronic bracelet. Use it to enter via the turnstile to the right of that reception desk. You will then enter a common gender locker room with dressing cabins. There are separate showers and WCs for men and women. The electronic bracelet can be used with any locker (each registers which bracelet locked it so others cannot open it). Return the bracelet in the slot provided to unlock the turnstile when you leave. And, yes, the staff speak next to no English
