MINERAL springs have long held a special place in Slovak society. As early as the 16th century, Western European scholars began arriving in what was then Upper Hungary (in nowadays Slovakia) to study the spas' healing powers.

This colourful romantic postcard from 1906 shows one of the many small spas that has since disappeared. It was in the Gemer town of Revúca and actually consisted of just one building. Extending this logic, it is possible to say almost every Slovak town had its own spa.
