Pedestrian Classic Tour with Traditional Food tasting in Oradea

3 reviews
The tour it's a perfect mix of history, culture and architecture, especially for those who want to discover the city in an unique way, but not spending too much time on it or gaining too much and maybe ''boring'' information. It will provide you a good understanding of why Oradea is considered the Art-Nouveau capital of Romania and why it is known as ''the city of kings'', all these behind the legends that stays in the back of the city construction. <br><br>Tasting traditional food is another way of disovering local culture. ”Plăcintă” is is a Romanian, Moldovan and Ukrainian traditional pastry resembling a thin, small round or square-shaped cake, usually filled with apples or a soft cheese such as ”Urdă”. This Romanian spirit is now known even in Japan. It is ”palinca” or ”tuica”, a liquor that is always present on any Ardeal peasant’s table and not only.

The place is surely worthy of a visit. Besides the fact the food served is good and sold at a low price, the area is very big, there are lots of hot pools and attractions for people of all ages. The site offers a sauna (one of the most complete I've ever been into) and has a massage centre. But what appealed me the most was an electronic bracelet, on which you just put your money on and it allows you to do everything, cashless and safely.

We visited the Aquapark for the first time, comming from Cluj and staying one night in Oradea. We wanted to spend a relaxing afternoon the but unfortunately after 30 minutes inside I burned my leg really bad in the turkish steam bath. The steam that was comming was too hot and was situated in the area of sitting, at the level of my feet. Be careful, it is a very hot and dangerous steam! I spent the next 2-3 hours going several times to the first aid inside Aquapark where they treated my leg with burning spray(Oximed). For me the relaxing day was over, I had pain and a burning red spot on my leg for hours and I could not do anything anymore. I just waited around for my family to swimm a little. I was very disappointed about this experience, this never happened to me in my life, in any other thermes that I visited before. Don’t pay extra for the turkish bad( 25 Ron), it is not worth it! There are only 5 mini pools with thermal water of different temperatures and the dangerous hot steam bath. There are more saunas, most of them quite nice and interesting. In the finnish sauna one floorboard is broken which is also a potential for an accident. Also there is no instruction about taking a shower directly after the sauna and not jumping directly in the cold pool in the sauna area. People full of transpiration jump directly in the cold pool after sauna!!! It is disgusting, not respecting a basic rule of hygiene. First taking a short cold shower and the jumping in the cold pool. Beside that, our impression was that almost all floors are flooded and the cleaning staff is pulling the water careless so that dirty water comes in the pools. I think this is disgusting and not hygienic. The official closing time is 22:00 but actually all saunas close at 21:00 without prior information about this, when buying the ticket. The staff started cleaning the floors at 21:30 when people were still in the pool and dirty water came in the pool again. Something like this is not acceptable. Unfortunately the food was also terrible, cheep fast food is offered with no alternative. We will not come again to Nymphaea because there is a general safety and cleaning problem here. There are also people drinking beer and smoking outside, directly on the edge of the pool while bathing. Why is it allowed something like that???!!! There is a smoking area and a restaurant!

We visited the Aquapark on December the 28th. Booked 3 weeks in advance and got there around 11:30. No more sunbeads available, only chairs. Very crowded place still pretty well organized. The place is quite suitable for children but not for adults.

I came to the aquapark during the weekend and expected it to be pretty crowded, so I purchased tickets online in advance. I recommend buying the tickets online a couple of days before your planned visit (saves you from worrying about arriving there and not being admitted inside because there are limited spots; also, the admission line for those who had already purchased tickets online was significantly shorter). During the cold season the place can feel a bit crowded, because only the indoor pools are open to public. Due to limited space(I suppose) there really aren't that many sunbeds, but there are quite a few regular chairs. If you feel like you need a break from all the noise, you can pay extra for the saunas or the Turkish baths, which do offer quite an enjoyable experience. Upon admission, you are given a bracelet that you can charge with money (you will mainly use it to purchase drinks and food). The bracelet also comes with an assigned locker where you can leave your things and access them anytime. There's also the possibility to always check how much credit you still have on your bracelet. The bracelet can only be charged with cash, but there is an ATM inside (just be prepared to have cash on hand, otherwise you'll have to go to the ATM and then wait in line again). You can also rent bathrobes or towels and buy snacks, flip flops and swimsuits from the store inside the aquapark. Upon returning the bracelet, you will receive the credit that is left on your bracelet. There is also a cafeteria inside, where you can serve lunch. The waiting line does get quite long around lunch time (I prefer to wait 1-2hours and eat a bit later; or earlier). Food is quite diverse and decently priced (it's still a big source of income, especially because you're not allowed to bring food inside with you, so the higher prices are to be expected; I suppose it can get a bit expensive for families coming to eat there with children). The portions are quite big and filling though. During the summer there is significantly more space and a lot more pools and slides, but even in cold season the aquapark is a nice option to spend a day relaxing and having fun.

I can only say that it is much better than Budapest, in Romania the staff are cheerful and friendly willing to help, the people who frequent the place are also very fun, I can only say it was a long time spent at aqua park Oradea.
