We welcome you with beautiful cultivated parks and colourful flowerbeds. Spend a relaxing health spa day or wellness holiday here and don’t miss out on exploring the sights of the town. 

The Symbol of Piešťany

Also known as the Glass Bridge, it is the longest covered bridge in Slovakia. It connects the health spa island with the town centre. It was built at the beginning of the 1930s at the behest of Ludwig Winter, the tenant of the health spa. After the German army had destroyed the bridge in 1945 it was reconstructed in 1956.

Also known as the Glass Bridge, it is the longest covered bridge in Slovakia. It connects the Health Spa Island with the town centre. It was built at the beginning of the 1930s at the behest of L’udovit Winter, the tenant of the health spa. After the German army had destroyed the bridge in 1945, it was reconstructed in 1956. 
At one end of the bridge stands the statue of the Crutch Breaker. The bronze casting symbolises the power of the healing water. The statue is the town’s most famous landmark, which is even found in the town’s coat of arms. On the island side, the bridge has an inscription in Latin, which reads “Surge et ambula – get up and walk”, a Biblical reference to the healing of the sick

The Original Bathing House

The neoclassic Health Spa Napoleon on the Spa Island is the oldest spa treatment centre in Piešťany. It was built stage by stage between 1821 and 1862 and in the 1920s was modernised at the behest of L'udovit Winter. The striking name was for advertising purposes only and the building has actually nothing to do with Napoleon. It was built on the site of the first wooden houses and bathtubs, which were later destroyed by flood. Treatments are concducted in the Health Spa Napoleon, even to this day. Inside is the famous mirror pool, a salt cave, and a variety of treatment rooms.

Art Nouveau Jewels

The Winter family, who had long leased the health spa, invested a lot in the expansion of the spa. Piešťany today is rich in historical buildings that are a treasure to see. Several Art Nouveau buildings on Spa Island are worth seeing:

Hotel Thermia Palace

Our hotel was built in 1912 and is impressive both inside and out. The hotel’s emblem is the peacock, the symbol of immortality and grandeur. Right from the base of the stairway there is the splendour of the past. Admire the painting by Alfons Mucha in the Grand Restaurant. Mucha visited Piešťany twice and gave the hotel the picture out of gratitude for his daughter’s  recovery and the staf’s warmth and caring. 

Health Spa Irma

Standing directly above the healing springs, here you’ll find the unique mud pool, which is built directly on the mud floor. Over 60 healing and recuperation therapies are offered here – in an Art Nouveau building that impresses through its architecture alone.
