About
Aura Centre offers the best sports entertainment for visitors of all ages. The whole family can have a good time, relax, and do sports in the swimming pool, water park, and sauna centre (9 different saunas). On the outdoor terrace of the sauna centre, you can enjoy igloo saunas and relax in hot tubs. The main attractions of the water park are three slides. One is 55 m, other 38 m long and the newest one (the blue slide) is 60 m. The blue slide offers a unique interactive experience in Estonia. The enclosed slide has light and sound effects. The 60-metre slide with touch buttons is perfect for those who want to make their own decisions in the selection of topics and collect points. There is a water curtain at the end of the slide.

It was an incredibly bleak day in Tartu - heavy wind, heavy rain.. and rather than stay shut in in my hotel, I walked the 5 minutes to the Aura Center to warm up. There were a few options of what to pay for - I elected to just do the sauna portion, and not even use the pools.

With the reasonable price of 8 euros, the sauna system was an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. There were a few steam saunas and a few dry saunas at varying temperatures. There was also bubbling hot and cold tubs and a heated sitting area to just relax and look out the window.

As it was just coming up on the end of the work day, it was initially quiet in the place. Once work ended, it got busier and families showed up as well (which I was a little surprised at).

Anyhow, that's basically all the information you need for the sauna portion. There are multiple rooms with differences in each. All ages are allowed. It's a mixed sauna so you must wear a bathing suit, though a towel was provided for free as well as a locker. I found it an acceptable way to spend a couple of hours. It certainly relaxed me.

I was expecting more from the waterpark, something like Parnu Terviseparadis. Two tubes only, ending in relatively deep pool, i.e. not OK for small children. Nothing much else to do around, kid's pool was closed for some kind of private use. The air was quite chlorine smelly, even hurting eyes near the bubblethubs. But the worst was cafe (on exit) service. I might understand that ice-cream coctails are to be prepared for 50mins for some reason, but when I asked for simple ice-cream instead, the chick said: well, we do have, but i am a little busy... (??!?!?!?!) I had nothing to add, so we just left.

Average leasure center with public swimming pool, saunas and some slides. Nothing special, but good if you want to swim or entertain your children.

Very nice place. Its very good that also a normal swimming pool is accesible. Nice saunas - but I would prefer to go together with husband. man and women seperatly. Water and air might be little bit warmer also it was said its +30 air, but it did not felt like that.

A very nive, clean and comfortable public pool. Very relaxing and nice way to spend your time. Come on workdays not later than 2pm if you prefer quiet swimming in your own lane.
