The Mineral Spring Road

Location: Prešovský kraj, okres Stará Ľubovňa, Stará Ľubovňa

A tourist route linking 12 mineral springs is a new attraction in the northern Spiš region

The route with a total length of 100 km links together twelve of the most important mineral springs across the region, enabling visitors to discover, see and taste the best the region has to offer.

The springs are suitable for drinking regimes, have a differing composition of minerals and help with various medical problems. Every tourist can find their “own” spring. For example, the spring in Ľubovnianske kúpele is suitable for sportsmen and women; the Smerdžonka spring is good for the skin; it is said in Litmanová that the spring purifies one's spiritual side.
An interesting attraction on the route is the Kneipp therapy: a foot bath which can be tried out by the springs in Vyšné Ružbachy and in the village of Lacková.

The whole Mineral Springs Route project was carried out by the Northern Spiš-Pieniny Local Tourism Organisation which plans in the future to add further mineral springs, of which there are around 80 in the area.
