Šarišský Štiavnik (sources)

In the past the village was famous for its healing springs. In the 18th century, the Szirmay noble family allowed to construction of a health resort, which was gradually expanded. It was used to treat patients without any detailed knowledge of mineral waters. Three sources of mineral water were used in the middle of 19th century. With their efficiency and quality of water they were sufficient for the needs and requirements of the modern spa activities.

Healing water has been used to treat rheumatism, skin diseases, migraines, jaundice, stomach problems, blood production disorders, and more. Peloid was also used for treatment. Today, sources still exist, but due to their low efficiency, the village spa ceased to exist. However, healing water is still available to everyone.
