Baths and Beer in Budapest #WhereInTheWorld [CHUG Takeover] REVEALED!

As largest city and capital of Hungary, Budapest has been cited as the “most beautiful city in Europe” by both Time Magazine and The New York Times. And while it contains the typical European beauty marks—castles, churches, and parks— it has a few unique landmarks that make it different from any other city.

The Széchenyi Medicinal Bath is one of the city’s most unique landmarks. This bath is the largest medicinal bath in all of Europe, drawing its water from two thermal springs. The waters are high in calcium, magnesium, hydro-carbonate, sodium and sulfate, which help sooth arthritis and other joint pain.

Once you’ve soaked in a healthy dose of the healing baths, you can venture to any one of Budapest’s local bars where they take craft beer to whole new level. When toasting with beer, however, it’s important to remember clinking your glasses in Budapest is a criminal offense.

Tune in at 7:30/6:30c to follow Zane on his adventure through Budapest, where he discovers the national spirit, local beers and is reunited with his buddy, Steve McKenna.
