Veli Bej Turkish Bath is one of the recently restored thermal Turkish Baths in Budapest, Hungary.
Veli Bej Bath Budapest – Turkish Bath
The core of the historical (and now contemporary) bath complex is the octogonal main bath from around 1574 built by Sokollu Mustafa Pasha, the Ottoman Turkish-Bosnian dignitary. He was the pasha, and Turkish leader in Buda who built most of the now famous Turkish baths in Budapest, including Rudas Baths and Racz Baths(at that time Budapest was Buda, Pest and Obuda separately).
Just like the rest of the Turkish Baths in Budapest, Veli Bej is on the Buda side, between the foot of the hills and the river Danube, by the Margaret Bridge and Margaret Island.

Unlike many of the thermal baths in Budapest (Szechenyi, Gellert, Rudas, Lukacs, Kiraly, Dagaly, Palatinus, Dandar, etc.) the Veli Bej bath is not a state owned thermal bath managed by the Medicinal Baths of Budapest Co. Veli Bej bath belongs to the Hospital of the Brothers Hospitallers of St. John of God (Iragalmasrendi Kórház).
