Summer in Slavonia: New Aquapark Shhhuma opens at Papuk

Aquapark Shhhuma at Papuk

In the area where the Pannonian Sea was 16 million years ago, today there are hills, mountains and forests, beautiful valleys, native vineyards, excellent restaurants and about thirty wineries, including some of the most famous in Croatia.

Overshadowed by the Adriatic Sea, not many people associate Slavonia as a place to cool down in during the summer months, but there are options.

The aquapark is located in the green mountain oasis of Papuk in the heart of Slavonia where there was once a thermal springs bathing spot.

On 17,000 m2 n the heart of Papuk Nature Park, there are six pools, including an Olympic-sized pool, a mushroom pool as well a pool with slides, a slow river with a water bar, a children’s water tower, a sprinkler and more.
