Thermal Baths of Piešt’any

Balneotherapy, Thermal and Mineral Baths

What is a thermal bath
Rich in minerals and warmed by the heat of the Earth’s interior, thermal water is the basis of our natural treatments in the Slovak spa of Piešťany. As the natural temperature of our thermal springs is around 68°C, the water has to be cooled down to a temperature suitable for bathing, which is usually between 36-39°C. It contains various useful salts and trace elements as well as a small amount of hydrogen sulphide. Traditionally, clients bathe naked in large indoor common pools, called Mirror Pools (men and women separately). Your thermal bathing treatment will conclude with a 15-minute full body dry wrap.

How a thermal bath helps

The heat of still thermal water widens the blood vessels, thus improving blood circulation and relaxing the muscles. Further it alleviates stiffness and pain in chronic joint and spine disorders. Thanks to the content of sulphur, the elasticity of the connective tissues is enhanced as well.

Some of our older thermal bathhouses are true architectural gems, whilst our newer facilities combine thermal water with sauna facilities, swimming and hydro pools. You are encouraged to relax in the thermal bath for 15-20 minutes daily unless otherwise advised by one of our doctors.
