Still Making Waves in Hungary...since 1927

Waves and pools are not usually associated with Hungary, but in 1927 they were introduced to a wave pool at the Gellért Baths in Budapest. Completed in 1918, the Gellért Baths is a large Art Nouveau indoor/outdoor complex of pools, thermal baths and spas. The wave pool was clearly not intended for surfboards, but rather to give visitors a taste of waves, without a journey to the ocean.



This novelty of man-made waves is still going strong today all around the world. But, it is now infused with new technologies and the enthusiasm of surfers to create the perfect waves, that the ocean only grants sparingly and often at inconvenient times and places.
