Natural healing springs in Luhačovice

Luhačovice offer unique wealth – natural healing springs. The company Spa Luhačovice, a.s. takes care about the spring Vincentka and 9 other mineral springs.

The mineral waters of Luhačovice have a high mineral content, being perfectly gas-charged with free carbon dioxide. Their temperature varies between 10 and 14 ° C. They are considered among the most effective in Europe.

They help us in the spa treatment of the respiratory, musculoskeletal, digestive and circulatory system diseases, as well as diabetes and reconditioning after oncological treatment.

They are used during the drinking cure, inhalation procedures and carbonic baths. We provide our guests with around 80 000 natural carbonic baths and almost 200 000 inhalations of mineral healing water per year.

The most known healing spring of Luhačovice is Vincentka. Vincentka is the basic inhalation medium in the major part of Czech inhalatoriums. However, its effect when drunk directly from the spring cannot be substituted anyhow.
