The largest water park in Europe has already opened. You will find it in Hungary! We have all dreamed of living in a water park all summer when we were children, now as adults, it helps us to accompany our children, nephews, etc., under the pretext of taking care of them when in reality we enjoy it more than them throwing ourselves down that slide kilometric.
Now we can do it, also traveling, because Hungary has opened this May Aquaticum Debrecen Strand, a spectacular park located in the Hungarian city of Debrecen. It was inaugurated in 2020, but the sanitary circumstances have not allowed it to be enjoyed with all its charms until now. Now yes, with normal capacity and without masks, the water park awaits new tourists with open arms and through multiple events and new services.
Perhaps its main charm is that despite its size, it is surrounded by greenery and is also considered one of the most innovative parks in Europe.
The facilities of the Aquaticum Debrecen Strand are as varied as they are complete. In its 5,700 square meters, we can find 500 square meters of water divided into 15 pools, as well as a 200 square meter plunge pool, a training pool, and two pools of 50 and 30 meters each. Without a doubt, one of its great attractions is its eight slides, four of the giant.
And, if you are looking for more adrenaline, you can not miss the jump platform and the spectacular 12-meter glass-bottom pool. For sports lovers, the park also has several sports fields (basketball, volleyball, soccer), a fitness park, and ball and ping pong tables.
Fathers and mothers have rest and relaxation areas with medicinal waters that will provide a bath full of peace. In addition, the spa has a spa pool and a gently drifting lazy river, as well as sun terraces, loungers, shades, and a water bar. To complete the visit, the complex also has a promenade full of restaurants and cafes.
