Gellért Thermal Baths and Swimming Pool, also called Gellért fürdő or Gellért Baths, is a bath complex in Budapest, Hungary, built between 1912 and 1918 in the (Secession) Art Nouveau style. It was damaged during World War II,  but then rebuilt. References to healing waters in this location are  found from as early as the 13th century. A hospital was located on this  site during the Middle Ages. During the reign of the Ottoman Empire, baths were also built on this particular site.
