Deals

The tender for the renovation of carriages on the city's Metro 3 line will be called within two or three weeks, Budapest mayor István Tarlós said at a press conference in Budapest's Gellért bath on Monday. Tarlós also said a total of HUF 15 bln will be spent modernising and expanding six major Budapest thermal baths and lidos between 2015 and 2020.

The cost of upgrading the Gellért, Palatinus, Paskál, Dagály, Csillaghegy and Pesterzsébet lidos will be covered by the city and Budapest Gyógyfürdői es Hévizei, the municipally-owned company that runs the facilities, Tarlos told. About HUF 10 bln of the funding will come from Budapest Gyógyfürdői es Hévizei and about HUF 10 bln directly from the City of Budapest. In the case of the Dagály outdoor swimming pool, part of the funding will be covered by the state.
