The spa facilities in Rabka Zdroj

On the left is a photograph of the salt spring building or spa in the park in Rabka Zdroj.

The salt water spring (solanka) cascades through the wooden twigs around the central section to cascade as a fine mist. People walk around this to inhale the healthy salt laden mist.

They always walk in a clockwise direction, why we don't know.

The nearby coffee shop stocks spring water in bottles that people can purchase to drink. There is a selection with different health giving properties.

For people who associate the word spa with massage and jacuzzi, there are various places to enjoy massage and related treatments in Rabka at very attractive prices. See pamper breaks.
