Health resorts are not only beautifully located SPA centres, with cures, promenades and social gatherings. Polish health resorts are also historical sites – mementos of past royalty, politicians, writers and artists. Jan III Sobieski drank the mineral waters at Horyniec, Ada Sari cured her throat in Szczawnica, and Stefan Zeromski wrote his 'History of Sin' in Naleczow. A sojourn in a SPA for health reasons, taking the waters, as it was known, at the mineral springs was an essential date in certain society's annual calendar. It was a social event, a time of reunion and meetings.
Today, retired people and children are not the only visitors to health resorts. Young and healthy people are looking for a certain solace away from the urban turmoil. A stay in a SPA or a biological regeneration center with, pearl baths, mud baths, fango wraps, Scottish showers and walks in the quiet, green surroundings have become very fashionable. For British, French, Italian, German or Scandinavian visitors to our SPAs it can also be less expensive.
