The other face of the Szechenyi Baths

It's Saturday night on April 21st. The subway car that leads to the Szechenyi baths, in the heart of the Hungarian capital, is full of young people wanting to have fun and enjoy the night.

And although fun is still the main attraction, this time people do not come precisely to relax.
