hotel. That same year a group of hoteliers established the „Royal Nagyszálloda Részvénytársaság,” the Royal Grand Hotel company’, with a registered capital of 1.2 million forint. The chairman of this

Chapter 7

1910khomlokzat_szinesThe Royal Spa – With all its bright new buildings this street looked fantastic. There were new theatres, restaurants, apartment blocks and even a spa. In 1886 the architect Vilmos Freund had built a luxurious ’bathing institution’ almost at the corner of Király street and the splendid Elizabeth boulevard. The pool of
that new institution , equipped with a machine generating waves, was the sensation of the town.

Benefits of Exfoliation
Exfoliating your body can improve the results of your skin care routine and help rejuvenate your skin, it doesn’t matter if you have dry, normal, oily or sensitive skin. The process of exfoliation rids the body of any dry, dull skin by removing dead skin cells from the surface of the epidermis. By removing these dead cells, exfoliation can help keep pores from becoming clogged and leave skin with a refreshed and clean feeling.

In addition to the immediate visual benefits of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells speeds up the skin renewal process, allowing smoother, healthier skin cells to take their place.
