Hot springs have long been utilised in the world for treatment, pleasure and relaxation. In Ukraine, thermal pools have just started their triumph, especially in the Transcarpathian region. This is due to the tectonic structure of Transcarpathia; here, the earth’s crust has many faults of different depths, through which, surface water penetrates the bowels, gets heated and saturated with minerals and pushed to the surface.
You may be interested in tours to the thermal waters of Transcarpathia.
We offer you to discover ten thermal complexes of Transcarpathia and choose the best rest for your body and soul.
Please note that the prices for the thermal pools are as of October 2020
