Current Covid-19 information about Gyula Castle Bath
Types of pools
One of the most up-to-date wave pools in Hungary, which is unique in the Southern Great Plain, is ideal for visitors of all ages. The almost 1 m high waves afford real adventure and fun for both adults and the little ones. To the wave machine, which is in operation for 5-7 minutes every half an hour, a signalling sound calls the bathers’ attention. The shallowest part of the pool is 45 cm, and the deepest is 2.2 m. Consequently, it is a perfect lido and family pool alike.
Water slide pool
This deck level pool of 24-26 °C (0.95-1.35 m deep) is the real favourite of the families. You can plop into the water of the pool from three slides, and the water depth increases gradually, thus it is suitable not only for playing and throwing the ball about but also for swimming. To one of the most popular pools of the lido in the Gyula Castle Spa – to the greatest delight of children – we have built two more thrilling slides in addition to the traditional small one. The kamikaze slide and the giant slide with a run of 110 metres can be used free of charge, and they can be reached almost directly from the water. Our trained staff watches over the safe start of sliding down. The parents, who want to follow with attention their children from the poolside, are free to use the relax area and the benches placed there for taking a rest and sunbathing.
25-m swimming pools
In the competition swimming pool operating throughout the year, there are swimming competitions, water polo matches and other entertaining programmes for sport-loving visitors. In the summer season the Kormorán Diving School of Gyula gives diver training courses, and those interested may take part in a light scuba diver test diving.

Children’s water paradise
For the restful amusement of families going to an open-air bath with little children, it is indispensable to find there a small pool that is observable also by the parents, i.e. a wading pool. First in Hungary, we have built not a wading pool for children between 2 and 10 years but a 400 m2 playground, of course, in the water! This water paradise provides self-forgetting amusement and play for the little ones. During their activity our youngest visitors have the possibility to use 10 kinds of toys and adventure elements. The “mini wellness”, is heatable and has an up-to-date water purifying system. The “FOUNTAIN”, which is an inverse pool, ensures a unique amusement. Here several hundred spouting water jets offer the children an unforgettable experience.
