Facebook fan Nomi Nanako Tilde Nomi shared a favorite summertime water spot with us: Széchenyi Baths in Budapest, Hungary, where bathers can play chess as they relax in the healing waters. Championed first by the Ottomans, the thermal baths of Budapest number quite a few, and include sprawling, baroque Széchenyi Baths in City Park.
