Borșaroș traditional bath

Borşaroş traditional bath is in the vicinity of Borşaroş botanical reserve, on the bank of the Olt River in Sâncrăieni village. This comprises in the exterior: four cottages, a pool with mineral water (14.5 ° C) and a terrace built in traditional style and in the inside: a jacuzzi, a treatment pool and a sauna. Archaeological excavations show that the mineral springs in the area of Sâncrăieni served as junctions even in old times. Mineral springs have curative properties through their rich content of sodium, magnesium, calcium and carbohydrate. What makes them special is that the limonite precipitated from the mineral water creates conical mud structures in some places or it spreads around the spring, forming reddish covering, which is called “borsár” (mineral water mud) by the locals, hence the Hungarian name Borsáros.

Access is possible from the county road E574 or the national road E578. Borșaroș traditional bath is in Sâncrăieni village, opposite Borșaroș fen, situated just 25 km from Tusnad and 8 km from Miercurea-Ciuc.
