Lučenec awaits new thermal aquapark

A new thermal aquapark called "Novolandia" is coming to Lučenec (Banská Bystrica region), the Slovak Investment and Trade Development Agency (SARIO) reported on November 1.

Exploratory drilling to a depth of 1,501 metres, carried out in April, hit a geothermal mineral water source with temperatures of 38°C. Given that the water has a high salt content, similar to ocean water, it can be used for balneotherapy.

The new investment project will have a positive impact for the future development of the town and the whole Novohrad area, local authorities say.

The aquapark, expected to be year-round, would cover an area of 20 hectares, with 10 pools in five spa areas, various sports facilities, a wellness centre, a hotel, a guesthouse, and a villa area with accommodation for rent.
