Cruise down the Danube on a floating beach – Urban Landscape Group

Urban Landscape Group have just launched the Barge Beach Budapest/Uszály Strand

Budapest is famous for its Turkish baths and open air pools, but this summer there is an unusual addition to the capital’s bathing scene: a floating beach on the Danube river, right in the city centre.
Mayor Gabor Demszky on Thursday praised the solution to the “decades old” problem of Budapest citizens being cut off from the Danube by the two busy highways that run along its embankments.
The “beach” is actually a wooden-decked platform built onto old barges of the type that haul cargoes of coal and stone up and down the Danube.

It has an area of 2100 square metres, larger than six tennis courts, with a 16-metre swimming pool, a coffee bar sand pits and a childrens paddling pool and sun loungers.

Az Uszály Strand egy medencés strand, mely egy uszály rakterébõl kialakított úszó- és gyermekmedencébõl, valamint az uszály mellé csatolt 2 bárkából áll, melyeken különleges, a strandolást kiegészítõ „vízélmények” valamint napozóágyak találhatók, melyek 2100m2-en terülnek el. A vízen úszó különleges látványstrand a Duna-part frekventált, turisták által látogatott belvárosi szakaszán jelent unikális élményt  az érdeklõdõknek, a hazai közönségnek és a turistáknak egyaránt.
