When darkness falls outside way too early, days are gray and gloomy, everyone would like to find a place that is warm and soothing - for example, a relaxation pool of a thermal park.
Snow definitely doesn’t spoil us this season, however the temperatures - especially at night – remind us that it’s winter. Is there a better place to get a little warm than the thermal springs? There’s no lack of medicinal baths both in Poland (for example – thermal baths Bania in Bukowina Tatrzańska, or thermal pools in Zakopane), as well as abroad. To take advantage of the wide range of swimming pools, saunas or hot tubs, you don’t need go too far. Our Slovak neighbors have a few tempting complexes, where you can relax to your heart’s content.
Quite a big interest among tourists enjoys a water park Tatralandia, the main water sports center in Slovakia. A little bit less attention is paid to Gino Paradise Bešeňová, though wrongly – maybe it’s not as big as its competitor, located on the other side of Liptovská Mara, but no one will say that it isn’t charming. And we’ll focus particularly on it today. It’s located about 68,5 km from the border crossing in Chyżne.
