Sovata, Romania

Europe's Warm Salt Water Lake

Sovata is home to the largest heliothermal lake in Europe. It’s a place where naturally-occurring salt water and the sun’s heat allow warm water bathing surrounded by outstanding natural beauty. There is no place quite like Sovata.

Ever since the formation of the Bear Lake and the discovery of it’s unique heliothermal qualities at the very beginning of the 20th century, this small place in the Carpathian Mountains has enjoyed health resort status: from a golden era of royal visitors and elegant villas to a post-war period, busy with bureaucrats and workers, to its stunning renovation in 2009. 

Sovata has always been known as ‘the town where women are happy’, such are the remarkable effects of its natural resources for female health.

Wildly romantic nature, beautiful wooden villas built in the 19th century and a naturally warm lake make Sovata an ideal place to relax and recharge.
