Once a star of the city, now looks outdated

Nothing's actually wrong with the Aura Centre, but it could use a facelift and maybe some new additions. The staff is experienced and friendly, children will have fun.

Like the rest of Tartu - clean clean clean. And efficient use of space without sacrificing fun. We enjoyed the several saunas, steam room, heated mosaic loungers and the waterpark - small but it has everything you could want for water play - a lazy river, hot tubs, two slides, water massage, water basketball and water jet lounges.

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

Closed summer 2016 due to maintenance work. Very disappointing children were promised swimming and slides. Message went on website two days before due to close.

I think the place was exactly what it promised to be. Two slides are not for very little kids (you have to be able to swim) and not very exiting for teens. But good fun for school kids. Swimming pools were good and so were the saunas. Everything was very clean. The staff was quite uninterested, as my child had... More

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.

Located near downtown, five minute walk from our hotel. Good was to kill a few hours while doing laundry. We only visited the waterpark, which was very suitable for a four year old. Floatation devices were available, the water slides were exciting (for that age) and there was lots to do. There is a viewing area and cafe.

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)...

I used only the swimming pool, which is fantastic, very big, not crowded, and there's a sauna in the shower room, so if you're only interested in swimming and sauna just buy the least expensive ticket for the pool. There are however also other activities there, which I heard are also of top quality.
