30 Years in Pictures
Celebrate National Geographic Traveler's first three decades with flashes from the past.

Good for both body and mind, the waters of Budapest's Széchenyi Baths draw people seeking a curative soak or a challenging game. This photo appeared in an August 1990 National Geographic Traveler article about Hungary's thriving capital.

Senior photo editor Carol Enquist and associate photo editor Ben Fitch discuss the image and what makes it so powerful.
