Slanic Moldova

Slănic Moldova resort is famous  for its springs of carbonated water, soda water, light sulphur water, chlorate water, hypertonic, hypotonic and oligomineral water, discovered as early as 1801. In 1852 the first chemical tests were carried out, and in 1877 the first spa facilities appeared. In time, the qualities of the mineral waters discovered here were confirmed by the medals won at the international exhibitions in Paris, Vienna, Frankfurt/Main, etc. The specialists compared them with the mineral waters of Karlovy Vary, Vichy, Aix-les-Bains, etc. Called ”the Pearl of Moldavia”, Slănic Moldova ensures treatment for digestive disturbances (hypo and hyper-acid chronic gastritis, gastric and duodenal ulcer, at least three years after the painful episode, post-surgery stomach troubles, non-typical chronic colitis, irritable colon, chronic constipation), hepatobiliary diseases (biliary diskinesia, chronic colecistitis with or without stones, liver disease post-surgery conditions), metabolic and nutritional diseases (melitus diabetis, weak and intermediate forms, obesity), kidney and urinary diseases (conditions after the treatment of urinary infections, where there were no lesions or kidney malfunctions).
