History

16 YEARS OF CENTRUM BABYLON

Although it seems like a snap of fingers, 16 years have already passed from the time when the Babylon Town was visited by the first curious visitors. It has undergone a considerable development during that time, many things have changed and new things have arisen; but let's start just from the beginning.

The idea of building a unique entertainment centre emerged already in 1996 . The Hedva textile factory came into consideration; it was a deserted and dilapidated building with the area of more than 30 000 m2. Thanks to its location and walking accessibility from the centre of the city, it was a clear choice for modification into an "adventure factory" for youth and families with children, local as well as international visitors. In the course of three years, the shell construction of the new dominant of Liberec was built and gradually shaped into its final form.

Babylon started its era by the ceremonial opening of the Shopping Town in 1998. During a short time, a disco, gastronomic shops and the Lunapark - funfair attractions with the children castle were opened. During the following two years, after necessary building modifications, the Aquapark - water world with four toboggans, slides, romantic caves and a wild river, all that in the style of an ancient spa - started its operation. The four-star WELLNESS HOTEL BABYLON with the direct access to the entertainment part was built for the comfort and rest of the visitors; the EXPO hall opened the possibility to hold corporate and cultural events.

The indispensable relaxation goes hand in hand with entertainment. Since 2007, the Babylon Centre has been offering the opportunity to relax and care for soul and body in the Wellness Centre. The opening of the entertaining-educative iQPARK science centre brought a new dimension of entertainment. With its motto "You will understand what you try", it offers dozens of varied exhibits from the spheres of physics or mathematics. It immediately became a point of interest for different school trips or educational excursions.

In the course of several following years, the centres underwent innovation and modernization. The congress part of the hotel, having the halls of different types and sizes, was added thanks to the growing interest of corporate clients. At present, the hotel offers the capacity of more than 1000 beds. The area of more than 1000 m2 – a new congress space? No, that is the area of the present Wellness Centre. Saunas, tepidarium, massages, packs, whirlpools, Sauna Africana for private events ... What could be better for physical and mental wellness? Would you like something "more extra"? What about the XD Theater, Laser Shot, newly installed professional equipment at Bowling, the new image and equipment of Laser Game, the reconstructed Aquapark in the style of Jules Verne's stories and, moreover, the unique Laser Show, the first of its kind in the Czech Republic... One day will not be sufficient for all that ...

Just as the name of Babylon is related to a blend of languages and nationalities, the Babylon of Liberec is related to universality and variety, welcomed by some people and rejected by others. But Babylon will still be the place where people like to return because of its originality and unusual atmosphere. Come and experience it too!
