History
After their grand opening in 1912, the Art Nouveau hotel Thermia Palace and Irma Health Spa became world-famous and some of the most sought-after spa facilities not only in Europe but the whole world.

In choosing an emblem for this hotel, Ľudovít Winter was inspired by a magical story about a peacock which was healed by the water from Piešťany springs. Mr. Winter therefore chose one of these magnificent birds to become the symbol of Thermia Palace. There is a relief of a peacock on the front façade of the hotel and on the stained glass on the upper floor.
 
The idea of building a luxurious hotel unparalleled in standard and connected to exceptional spa facilities by a corridor came to fruition. The hotel and the balneotherapy center, designed by Budapest architects Ármin Hegedűs and Henrich Böhm, fulfilled their purpose for almost one hundred years with only partial renovations. 
   
Even in the past, Thermia Palace attracted kings, sheiks, maharajahs, and other important people. Among its guests you could find Bulgarian Tsar Ferdinand, German singer Richard Tauber, Nobel prize winner for literature Selma Lagerlöf, painter Alphons Mucha, Czech comedian Vlasta Burian, president Edvard Beneš, and many others. 
The most outstanding elements of the richly-decorated interior are the beautiful stained glass staircase and the Grand Restaurant with an invaluable painting by Alphonse Mucha, who donated the picture to the spa as a gift for curing his daughter.

Spa treatments

World-famous Spa Piešťany owes its reputation mainly to the remarkable natural springs, the unique healing potential of which has been verified by hundreds of generations, both in the distant as well as in recent past. The "crutch breaker", the famous symbol of Spa Piešťany, is a very accurate expression of the healing nature of Piešťany's natural phenomenon. The real idea behind the crutch breaker is not at all exaggerated, because a crutch is something which becomes redundant for many of our patients after treatment. This was the case in the past and is the same nowadays, and we will do our best to ensure that this remains true in the future as well.

Natural healing sources
The unique healing sources are the reason why people have come to Piešťany for centuries, and this is also the reason why the spas were created here.
The healing effects of the local thermal mineral water and sulphur mud were first described by physicians in the 14th century.

Thermal mineral sulphur water 
Thermal mineral water in Spa Piešťany has a high content of minerals (1500 mg per litre). The water also contains hydrogen sulphide and other free gases. It springs from tectonics faults from a depth of about 2000 metres. The water temperature of the springs is 67 - 69°C. Its output is around 3 million litres daily.

Sulphur mudSulphur mud is a unique peloid both on a European as well as a world-wide scale. Its base is a homogenised sediment collected in the riverbed of the River Váh, on the site of the current hot springs with sulphuric thermal mineral water.

The mud has important antifungal features. It is prepared for balneology application using original technology, which causes it to mature and regenerate, accompanied by a multitude of chemical and biological reactions. The mature mud has a butter-like consistency, and is greasy, malleable, with good heat conducting features. It cools down four times slower than water, and has a viscosity 350 times higher than water. The mud application temperature is approximately 45°C, and the duration of a partial or total wrap is 20 minutes. The wrap causes a temporary local, as well as total overheating of the body, which depends on the application area of the wrap. The mud wrap causes the reduction of local swellings around joints, reduction of muscle tension, and better nutrient supply to cartilages, connective tissues and intervertebral discs. It strengthens anti-inflammatory activity and immune processes within the body, preventing the degradation of elastine, collagen and hyaluronane, thus improving the functions of cartilage, connective tissues and joint movement.
