Spa History

The first mention of Bardejov Spa is from 1247, but people knew the healing effects of mineral waters earlier.
In 1777, they built a brick building near the springs with twelve rooms to secure comfort to the sick.

The rumor about spas has spread throughout Europe. The healing results attracted both the Hungarian and Polish nobility, which was significant for the spa development.
Among the most famous visitors were the Austro-Hungarian emperor, the Russian tsar, and the Polish queen.
In 1895 even Empress Elizabeth called Sissi, whose statue stands out in the spa park, was treated here.

In the first half of the 19th century, Bardejov Spa experienced its greatest prosperity. In a short time, a new spa house and several residential buildings were built. The spa was using 13 mineral springs to heal the patients.

Natural Healing Resources

Bardejov Spa is one of the few places that boasts a combination of unique climatic conditions, beautiful natural scenery, and natural healing resources with an exceptional composition.

The main wealth of the spa is its natural mineral waters. Ten springs spring up in a relatively small area of Bardejov spa.
The waters are mainly used for drinking cures, mineral baths, and inhalations.

All mineral springs stream in a spa colonnade and are used for drinking cures. The effect of drinking cures is most pronounced in diseases of the digestive system.

Drining cure mineral springs: Hercules, Main, Medical, Elizabeth, Klara, Napoleon, Anna, Colonnade.
