The Mayor of Subotica, Stevan Bakic, visited today the construction site of the spa center and aqua park in Palic.

This investment, which is very important to our city, should be finished until the beginning of March 2021.

Recalling that the cornerstone for the construction of the spa center and aqua park in the area of the Men’s Lido in Palic was laid on the 15th of December 2018, Mayor Bakic stated that the first phase has been completed, and that the second and final phase has begun this year during March, which is planned to last for 250 days, and to be finished by the end of the year 2020.

„Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the consequences caused by this disease, a consortium of contractors led by the company „Alex Engineering and Construction“ from Belgrade often worked with 50% capacity, the deadline for the completion of the spa center with aqua park was extended for 110 days, that is until March 2021 „, Mayor Bakic pointed out.

The realization of this project which involves using natural resources of thermomineral water in Palic will develop both spa and congress tourism, said Mayor Bakic and added that all this will reflect on the economic environment that will attract many domestic and foreign investors to invest their capital in Palic.

„This is an opportunity to express my gratitude to the Government of Serbia and the Provincial Government for the huge support in the realization of this very important investment for the city of Subotica. I would also like to thank the consortium of contractors for meeting deadlines, fulfilling the obligations and for the quality of their performances, as well as the esteemed media representatives for their great interest in the realization of this project.“

The director of LLC „Park Palic“, Nebojsa Darabos, reminded everyone that the complex is being built on an area of 4.4 hectares, that five pools will be built on 28.5 thousand square meters of outdoor space, at least one of which will be with thermomineral water,  and that five swimming pools and the spa facilities will be built in a closed part on an area of around three thousand square meters.

„The maximum capacity is 2.500 users, with a maximum of 500 visitors planned for the closed part of the complex, and 2.000 visitors in the outdoor part of the complex,“ said Darabos.
