The Celtic sauna world in Tatralandia will be joined by a new member of the team – a sauna for children, which will be BIO in every sense of the word. It was made only of wooden natural materials impregnated with beeswax. There won´t be any salt or infrared heaters used inside. The outdoor BIO sauna will be located on a pebble terrace next to the indoor Tropical Paradise hall. It will be connected with the wellness centre by a new passage with a lift in. Children will be allowed to stay in the 35-80˚C sauna for a maximum of 25 minutes with an adult person only.
