The city’s reviving was established by the 96 Celsius degree thermal water rich in minerals that was discovered in the course of an oil prospecting drilling in the early 60s.
Following the opening of the thermal spa in 1965, within a few decades a modern bathing complex was built, holiday-resorts, hotels, and restaurants opened. Its waters became famous abroad as well, thus it was gradually improved due to the bath’s great number of visitors. In the last four decades almost 22 million visitors seeking healing have come here.



The medicinal water is sodium chloride and hydrogen-carbonate spring water which due to its iodide- and bromide-ion content can be ranged among the iodic-bromous, and due to its sulphide-ion content among the sulphurous medicinal waters. The metaboric acid content of the water is very high. The medicinal water contains radioactive elements only in a highly insignificant number.
