The health resorts of Warmia and Masuria
Warmia and Masuria attract people with clean air, lakes and forests. And if we add a healthy microclimate, sources of healing waters, brine and mud – we gain excellent conditions for health resort activity. The status of a health resort was obtained by Gołdap, and four other municipalities are seeking it as well.
In March 2019, the Association of Health Resorts of Warmia and Masuria began its activity. The association includes the municipalities of Gołdap, Górowo Iławeckie, Lidzbark Warmiński, Frombork and Miłomłyn. The aim of the association is to take joint action for the development of spa areas.
Gołdap the best in Europe
Gołdap boasts the cleanest air in Poland. For years, it has been consistently developing its spa and tourist offer, which resulted in the acquisition in 2000 of the status of a health resort with a climate and mud profile. There is a sanatorium here that offers a number of medical procedures in the field of movement and rheumatic disorders, post-traumatic conditions and certain cardiology, respiratory, nervous system and female-specific diseases.
Visitors can use the Masurian Brine Graduation Towers which produce a healing microclimate around them. There is also a year-round Mineral and Healing Water Pump-Room with mini graduation towers and a salt cave. The uniqueness of the city resulted in a victory in 2019 in the pan-European competition EDEN (European Destinations of Excellence) for “Best European Tourist Destinations”.
On the way to the health resort
Of the eight villages in Poland that have the status of a spa protection area, as many as four are from Warmia and Mazury: Frombork, Lidzbark Warmiński, Miłomłyn and Górowo Iławeckie. In order for the area to become a spa, health resort facilities and equipment must be built on its territory.
Therefore, each of the localities has carried out or is now implementing projects aimed at the development of spa infrastructure. They are supported by the regional government with funds from the Regional Operational Programme of the Warmia and Masuria Voivodeship for 2014-2020.
