The modern man or woman's care for health, a beautiful body and well-being starts in a sauna. In the past, this was a habit typical of Scandinavian people; nowadays it is a well-established way of taking care of one's body. Its beneficial effects for our health and anti-stress therapy make each visit to the sauna a special event.
Sauna Land within the Atlantis Water Park is designed so that it can meet the requirements and wishes of any visitor, by offering a combination of dry and wet saunas over two floors and, in the outer part, two pools, a panoramic room and a terrace where you can rest. In our indoor saunas, visitors will be indulged by various treatments involving salt, ice, honey and a range of aromas.
The outdoor saunas are lovely little houses made from special polar wood called "kelo". The most noticeable is the Alpine Sauna due to its special design – that of a typical Alpine hut like one can find on Velika Planina. Other outdoor saunas: Panoramic Sauna, Earth Sauna and Miner’s Sauna.
Experiencing a sauna has beneficial impacts on our blood circulation, removes toxins from the body and accelerates our heart rate and digestion. Regular visits to a sauna improve one’s immunity to so-called winter illnesses, especially colds, and ease asthmatic and bronchial diseases. The beneficial effects of a sauna last for about a week, which is why you are recommended to visit a sauna once a week.
One visit to a sauna should include two to three heating and cooling cycles. Heating should last at least eight minutes at the sauna’s higher levels and should be followed by cooling off in a pool.
Kelo wood grows near the Earth’s pole. Due to the specific weather conditions in these parts of the world, it grows for ages (up to 400 years!) and is dried, if the process is natural, for several decades. In terms of its structure, kelo wood is fibrous, dry, light and covered with a silver-grey patina while the heartwood is reddish; the construction is extremely stable and the wood needs no protection against unfavorable weather conditions. Many experts believe that the best outdoor saunas must be made from kelo wood since it is able to preserve its contents and image over several generations.
The entrance ticket to the Sauna Land includes 3 visits to the Adventure World and 3 to the Thermal Temple. You can borrow a large towel at the front desk free of charge and you will receive 3 pieces of fruit or bags of tea at the counter in the Sauna Land.
