|SPA LIPTOV Lucky |
|The Lucky spa belong among the oldest spas in Slovakia. Most of the present balneo-historians start any history of this spa with reports taken from the balneography by H.J.N. Crantz "Gesundbrunnen der Osterreichischen Monarchie", (Healthful Springs in the Austrian Monarchy), dated 1777. The written history of the spa began in 1761, when the owner Adam Turjansky built the first sanatorium building. It is also worth mentioning the year 1736, when Matej Bel reported the spa in his work "Notitia Hungarie novae historico-geographica". The Lucky spa and its healing properties have been written about by such authorities of balneology as Dr. Vietoris, who performed the first analysis of the springs in Lucky. The prefect of this manor, Wisner von Morgenstern, ordered the construction of the new building with the large dining room and 17 guest rooms. In the mid-19 century, a new sanatorium was built here. It was following 1948, that Lúčky obtained the base of the modern, scientifically based treatment. The thermal springs were proffesionally contained, spa building were reconstructed, and accomodation and social rooms were outfitted with new equipment. The examination and treatment workplaces were equipped with diagnostic and therapy devices and equipment. Based on this assumptions, the rise of the spa in Lucky can be linked with the first third of the 18th century.
