Top Polish destinations to boost your health

Whether you are looking to increase your fitness, reduce stress, address a specific health concern, get motivated to lose weight or simply indulge yourself with luxury spa treatments, there is plenty to choose from in Poland. Polish health resorts all offer something different, considering sunny beaches or difficult mountain trails are not for everyone.

Polish mountains

Polish mountains are available for health tourism all year round, yet September and October are particularly recommended due to the little changeability of weather conditions. Changeable atmospheric pressure, strong winds and long raining periods may intensify the symptoms of high blood pressure, coronary artery, insomnia or depression, but may benefit people suffering from asthma, tuberculosis, anemia, low blood pressure or hyperthyroidism. Rabka, Krynica-Zdroj, Swieradow-Zdroj or Ladek Zdroj are only some of Poland’s top health resorts that might help you boost your health.

Coastal retreats

A bracing coastal breeze helps to restore fitness, particularly in those who suffer from respiratory problems, such as asthma and hay fever. A stroll along the edge of the sea, where the waves break, can be enormously revitalizing due to the increased levels of oxygen and iodine which leave your brain, skin, muscles and other organs feeling rejuvenated. It is especially beneficial to those suffering from  allergies, skin problems, coronary disease, hypertension, varicose veins or any sort of immunodeficiency.

The well-known Polish coastal destinations include Sopot, Kolobrzeg, Ustka, Dąbki or Swinoujscie.

Lowland health resorts

The best time to visit lowland health resorts is from April to September. Their main benefits include the lowland climate, characterized by a slightly higher humidity and lower wind speeds than those of the mountainous or coastal areas, as well as the therapeutic mud and the proximity of natural waters, rich in elements and minerals. The lowland spas will benefit nearly everyone except people suffering from allergies due to a high level of pollen-producing vegetation. Some of the lowland spas offering an amazing health and fitness experience  include Naleczow, Ciechocinek, Inowroclaw, Busko-Zdroj, Konstancin or Horyniec.
