Something in the Water

14 Jul 2017

Sopot’s fame as a spa resort is built upon the waters of the St Adalbert’s Spring (Sw. Wojciecha). According to our experts, the water here is high in bromide and iodine with large quantities of magnesium potassium and potassium iodine. When watered down it is drinkable and used to replenish medical deficiencies and is recommended for gastrointestinal disorders. The waters are also recommended for bathing and are recommended for those suffering from arthritis or rheumatism.

Finally, you’ll notice these glass-domed ‘Inhalation Mushrooms’ in the Southern Park in Sopot. The water flowing up here comes straight from the spring and sitting here and breathing in the iodine filled air is recommended for a whole host of breathing complaints.

You can taste the water by popping into the café on the third floor of the Sopot Tourism Association’s point in the Dom Zdrojowy (Health House). The staff will happily explain how it works and fill you a cup direct from the spring.
