Second largest spa in Europe - Therme Bucharest
Since January 14th, a new tropical paradise conquered Romania - these are Therme Bucharest, located just ten minutes from the city...
The owners of these Therme, Austrian A-Heat Group, say that this is the largest complex of its kind in Europe. Germany Wunde group, which has four thermal centers in Europe, worked on the development of this project. Apart from its uniqueness, innovation and huge investments, the largest thermal spa in Romania, will be a place where visitors will have the opportunity to witness the setting up of numerous records.
Therme Bucharest, wellness, relaxation and entertainment center with an area of 30,000 m2, is based on the thermal waters, which are located 20 km north of Bucharest, in Baloteşti. The main elements of this center are eight of heated swimming pools, where the water temperature is a constant 33 degrees Celsius. Pools of these spas are filled with thermal water, which is coming up from a depth of 3,100 meters. The air temperature is always between 29 and 30 degrees Celsius, and the center will be open 9:30 to 23:30 on weekdays and from 8 am until 1 am during weekends. Bucharest has now got a new special element that will definitely put it on the map, as well as the main tourist attraction of the region. Although the city itself has much to offer, this project will bring it worldwide fame.
Otherwise, this park contains not only swimming pools with thermal water, but also the largest public indoor and outdoor gardens in the country. Garden is composed of more than 800,000 plants and hundreds of species of trees, including the largest plantation of palm trees in Europe. The main attraction of this place is the Tree of Life, which is one of the largest botanical rarities today.
The center is divided into three main sectors; each of them has a specific theme. The Palm, as the name suggests, is dedicated to relaxation in the palm trees, or in Europe's largest garden of this type. Elysium space is designed for thermal sauna, where those who prefer cozy and relaxing massages will especially enjoy. The third sector of the spa center is devoted to partying. There is a wave pool, the largest of its kind in Romania, as well as a large number of water slides. When you get tired of all the activities that the sector offers, in its part is also a bar where you can unwind and relax with a glass of your favorite beverage and a tasty snack.
Constant climate changes, a large number of resorts near the Black Sea and the fact that Romanians as a nation work very much, convinced the Austrian investors that the center of this type is something that will be a real hit. Therefore, the inhabitants of Bucharest will have the opportunity to enjoy the second largest spa town in Europe - Rome is the first on the list of the biggest spa towns, as well as the oldest thermal capital.
Investment in the project will reach about fifty million. Construction of the baths began in 2013, with the initial investment in the amount of 29.64 million Euros. According to the companies working on this project, a ticket to the spa will be the equivalent of a movie ticket, so that it will actually be available to all.
