Smrdáky, Slovakia

Europe's Most Efficient Skincare Spa

Smrdáky is a small, rural spa resort in western Slovakia, often referred to as the ‘Slovak Dead Sea’ thanks to the exceptionally high levels of hydrogen sulphide in the mineral water. For this reason the town has been a leading destination for treating skin disorders for more than 400 years. It was also a famous place of healing for soldiers across the Austro-Hungarian empire who were injured in both the Napoleonic and First World wars.

Stay at one of our three hotels and enjoy the clean air and rustic charm of our 16-acre spa park in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains.

The "Slovak Dead Sea"

14 salty, sulphurous and iodine sources, and medicinal mud

Smrdáky’s exceptionally rich mineral water, containing more than 600 mg/l of hydrogen sulphide, is due to the formation of millions of years of sediment from aquatic life when the town’s position in the Carpathian basin, was once a prehistoric sea. This flow of water through the soil also yields a medicinal mud, the second potent healing factor in this resort.
 

  • The natural remedies make Smrdáky a mecca for the health-conscious.

  • The mineral water contains over 3400 milligrams of minerals per litre, with a particularly high content of hydrogen sulphide.

  • Because of the special effect on skin diseases. Smrdáky is called the "Slovak Dead Sea"

From 'Stinking' Village to Popular Health Destination

Smrdáky has been a popular health desintation since the 17th century

Smrdáci means 'stinker', the name given to local farmers when they visited fairs in neighbouring cities, because of the sulphurous odour of their natural resources.

  • The first spa house, built in the 19th century, remains an elegant monument to the town's healing heritage.

  • Drilling in the 1950s revealed more and more sources of mineral water throughout the local area.

  • The spa today is a highly prestigious centre for curing skin diseases.
