People have been in love with thermal baths since the Romans discovered how much they enjoyed a nice soak in their public baths. Maybe it’s the luxury feel of it or maybe it’s the pampering and relaxation, but people still love and enjoy a hot bath in a thermal spa. And you might think that a regular thermal spa would do, but people these days desire more lavishness. With this idea in mind, developers set about to open the largest thermal spa in Europe in the northern area of Bucharest, the city capital of Romania. And they managed to do so: Therme Bucharest is now the epitome of luxury spas in Europe.
What makes Therme Bucharest so lavish?
The thermal water is pumped from 3,100 meters ( about 10,000 feet) below the surface and it’s used for 8 pools and 16 water slides. It covers 25 hectares and it is spectacular.
The thermal spa in over in Budapest has more pools, yet it’s not quite as impressive as the one in Romania. Other therme in Europe include ones in Portugal, Germany or Iceland to name a few. What makes Therme Bucharest special compared to other therme in Europe is the fact that is has a more modern feel and look to it and it’s more than just a place for a nice, hot soak.
Explore a Unique Botanical Garden
Besides the areas dedicated to spa and wellness, the spa boasts a botanical garden with over 800,000 plants, many of which are unique.
The feel of Therme Bucharest is of luxury, lavishness and high technology as metal and glass fixtures intertwine with wooden platforms and lush plants.
Therme Bucharest is comprised out of three main areas and each has its own unique feel.
Relax a little in the Elysium
Elysium is dedicated to pampering and relaxation as it includes six saunas, each with its own theme. What’s more, here you can find a selenium pool which is great for relaxation and also a pool-bar, a shower area and three massage salons. If you get a bit peckish, the restaurant is there to cater to your needs.
Pamper yourself in The Palm
The second are is called The Palm and it’s the place to be if you want to relax and be serene. 500 exotic palm trees surround the main pool while the other three pools use aromatherapy to delight your senses. This area of Therme Bucharest looks a lot like Paradise!
Enjoy some family fun in The Galaxy
The third area, called The Galaxy is family-friendly and is meant to be a perfect place for families to have fun and enjoy some quality time together. It boasts waterslides and a pool that replicates the movements of waves. Lush greenery is found here as well, to keep in theme with the overall design of the thermal spa.
Therme Bucharest is a masterpiece in its own right. With lush vegetation, hi-tech finishes and attention to detail, this is a spa to remember. Whether you seek relaxation and overall wellness or to have some fun with family, Therme Bucharest is the place for you!
