Watch it on YouTube : WORLD's OLDEST INDOOR THERMAL POOL

The Cave Bath is a thermal bath in a natural cave in Miskolctapolca, city of Miskolc, Hungary.
The thermal water (temperature: 30°C/86°F) is reputed to reduce joint pain, and since it has a lower salt content than most thermal waters (around 1000 mg/liter), people can bathe in it for much longer, practically an unlimited amount of time. The Cave Bath can be visited all year long, except for January.
The cave and the thermal spring have been known since ancient times, but Tapolca became a popular bathing place only after the Ottoman occupation of Hungary (16th-17th century) the development of Tapolca into a bathing place was the idea of the abbot in 1711.  In 1837 the new abbot of Görömböly had the buildings restored and expanded. He also had the first indoor pool (though still outside the cave) built, but only for wealthy guests.
