#AccidentalWesAnderson Gellért Thermal Baths | Budapest, Hungary | c. 1918 • • Part of the famous Hotel Gellért in Buda, the Gellért Thermal Baths and Swimming Pool(also known as the Gellért Baths or in Hungarian as the Gellért fürdő) is a bath complex in Budapest, Hungary • • The bath complex was built between 1912 and 1918 in the Art Nouveau style. It was damaged during World War II, but then rebuilt • • References to healing waters in this location are found from as early as the 13th century. A hospital was located on this site during the Middle Ages and baths were built here during the reign of the Ottoman Empire • • The "magical healing spring" was used by the Turkish during the 16th and 17th centuries and was called Sárosfürdő ("muddy” bath), because the mineral mud would settle at the bottom of pools • • The Gellért Bath underwent its first extensive renovation in 2008, closing only once in its almost century long existence due to a burst pipe • • The Gellért was open even during World War II. Towards the end of the war the prestigious Art Nouveau women's thermal bath was bombed, destroying the Zsolnaypyrogranite facade and the wooden interior of the dressing rooms • • Due to economic condition following the war, the thermal bath was redesigned in a much more puritanical manner. The 2008 reconstruction served to restore the bath to its original splendor • • Know more?

L’estetica del regista statunitense è una delle più riconoscibili nell’attuale panorama cinematografico, grazie, soprattutto, alle inquadrature simmetriche e le palette di colori calibratissimi, per lo più pastello.
