The tourist pearl of Ukraine Transcarpathia hidden among the majestic Carpathian peaks remains unknown to many tourists. No legends can describe the color and originality of Transcarpathia, let alone its incredible nature.
Healing mountain air, favorable climatic conditions, numerous deposits of mineral waters, ecologically clean, home-made food have made this region attractive for the development of the sanatorium industry. There are 28 sanatoriums in Transcarpathia, each of which specializes in the treatment of certain types of diseases. This diversity is due to the fact that in a relatively small area is concentrated a huge number of mineral springs, different in their chemical composition and effects on the human body. There are:
- carbonated ferrous water, with an iron concentration of 20 to 70 mg / l;
- alkaline (similar in properties to the famous brand “Borjomi”);
- weakly mineralized, with a content of soluble organic compounds of about 20-30 ml \ l.
- hydrocarbonate, sodium, medical and table.
In addition to the use of mineral waters, the sanatoriums of Transcarpathia have a wide selection of water treatments: mineral, aroma and fitovanny, hydro-ozone therapy, circular and ascending shower. Among the physiotherapeutic procedures are relevant different types of massages (general, local, anti-stress), inhalation, magnetic therapy and many others. Popular today are cosmetic procedures that will preserve youth and beauty for many years.
When you decide to go on vacation in Transcarpathia, be sure to take the time to visit the tubs. The design of the vat is a giant metal pan. At least, such an association arises in most tourists. They are usually located near mountain streams or mineral springs. From generation to generation Hutsuls pass on the traditions of Carpathian medicine.
Locals know perfectly well at what time of year you need to collect these or those medicinal herbs, how to properly dry them and prepare health teas or infusions from them. Chans of Transcarpathia are also one of the ancient local health treatments. Interestingly, doctors do not deny the health effects of vats and even recommend their use to strengthen the body.
