By 12 February 2020

February 12, 2020 - Aquacolors Porec adrenaline aquatic park has been recognized in Monte Carlo as the best commercial swimming pool project in Europe in 2019.

Namely, Glas Istre reports that SCP, the world's largest distributor of swimming pools and pool equipment, had declared the newly built aquatic complex in the Porec the best commercial swimming pool project in Europe in 2019.

The SCP Award, considered the most prestigious award in the pool and wellness industry, is given to projects by its business partners, in this case, BK Mont from Pazin and Archetype 21 from Porec. Porec architects conceptually conceived and designed the aquatic complex project, which was subsequently implemented by BK Mont. They are working on the latest attraction that Aquacolors will premiere in the coming season, which has been ongoing for about ten months and employs seventy people.

The whole story started with the initiative of the Croatian team of SCP group, that is SCP Adriatica, which nominated this Pored project for an award. This company is the main distributor of the SCP group for the Eastern Europe region, and apart from Croatia, they are particularly interested in the markets of Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro, where they intend to expand more intensively in the coming period. SPC Adriatica Managing Director Lado Lacen is most responsible for the implementation of these plans.

Aquacolors officially opened in May of 2015 and stretches across 100,000 m2, which includes a 500-meter lazy river, playgrounds and sports courts, 500 sqm children’s pool, 13 water slides, five restaurants, and aa 1500 sqm wave pool. The water park welcomes around 5,000 visitors during the summer each day. 

Aquacolors, which is also Croatia’s largest water park, was ranked among the top 20 in TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travelers Choice Awards. Namely, Aquacolors came in 18th in the Top 25 Water Parks in Europe.

Aquacolors Porec is open in May, June, July, August, and September.
