With the temperature getting hotter this week in Osijek, this has many people thinking how hot it will get. If you just got back from the coast or just visiting your probably thinking where to chill and keep cool. Ice cream will be the favorite for the kids while you are touring the city or doing some shopping. This week maybe the week to skip on the marathon run.
The one thing to do is avoid too much exercise such as running or long bike rides. Drinking plenty of water to keep hydrated during the heat wave will help. Don’t forget to wear Sun screen and a hat for protection as it’s easy to forget how quickly one can get burned. It’s always best to keep cool in the shade to minimalize UV rays and the summer heat.
If you can’t make it to the swimming pool. A small inflatable pool for under 100 Kuna’s will do the trick especially if you are not a fan of crowds. It’s always a good idea to supervise young children because a lot can happen in a few seconds. The other cool game is tossing an ice cold water balloon around for fun. The old school as some may remember is getting sprayed by the garden watering hose. For those that find it still too hot, the patios will be packed as people will be seeking the cool breeze from the river Drava.
“Copacabana’’ or “Kopika’’ beside the river Drava is one of the coolest places to be in Osijek. Get there early before noon as the water is cool and plenty of parking. High noon the place is full and even gets more packed as people leave earlier from work on hot days like this. All four pools will be open this week due to the heat wave. With two water slides that stand two stories high and have been refurbished this year. With plenty of shade with trees and shelters to enjoy the sounds of summer.
Osijek and the surrounding areas have some great outdoor pools to keep cool. There are also some small pools as well. Here are some of the top of the list for pools to visit and have fun. It won’t be long until we say summer went by so quickly with school a month away.
