Here, there are three levels of the only chloride waters in Małopolska. As early as in the 19th century, they gained fame the strongest brines in Europe.
Rabka-Zdrój, a famous mountain children's health resort, is located in the valley of Gorce and Beskid Wyspowy mountains. Adults also come for therapy here, but it is the children who every year award the Order of the Smile (Order Uśmiechu) to adults, whose activity brought them the most joy.Mineral waters: “Helena”, “Krakus”, “Rabka 18”, “Rabka 19”, “Warzelnia” - respiratory system diseases, diabetes, obesity, motor disorders and cardiological diseases. History:Rabka brine springs have been known to the local people for many centuries. A princely document of Bolesław the Chaste from 1254, mentioned by the 15th century historian, Jan Długosz in his chronicle, is evidence that the springs were used for therapeutic purposes.However, only tests performed in 1858 confirmed their benign properties, which gave an impulse for the development of the health resort. It was then established that the springs are one of the strongest iodine-bromine brines in Europe. Thanks to the initiative of Józef Dietl, a few years later Rabka saw the official launching of a health resort. Very quickly various spa facilities sprung up, and the spa park was founded. At the end of the 19th century Rabka gained recognition for treating children’s diseases and maintained this reputation until the present day. In the post-war period it was also an important tuberculosis treatment centre.
