Croatia’s ‘Istralandia’ Named 2nd Best Water Park in Europe

Istralandia named 2nd best in Europe

More recognition for the first water park to open in Croatia – Aquapark Istralandia – which was named the 2nd Best Water Park in Europe.

Located in Brtonigla, in the north-western part of Istria, Aquapark Istralandia has been named the 2nd best water park in Europe.

Siam Park in Tenerife Island, Spain was named the No.1 water park in Europe for the second year running, ANSA (Agenzia Nazionale Stampa Associata) reports.

Istralandia, which became the first water park in Croatia when it opened in 2014, was the newest water park in the Top 10.

In just 4 years since opening its doors, Istralandia has won 11 various international and regional awards. Last summer Istralandia welcomed 180,000 visitors.

The Croatian water park was named the 5th best in 2015 at the awards in Gothenburg and again in 2016 in Barcelona.
