Museum Uzdrowiska Szczawnica

Museum Uzdrowiska Szczawnica

An intimate exhibition introducing the history of the resort, its most important inhabitants and regional traditions. The Spa Museum in Szczawnica is located just above the historic Dietl Square.

The exposition of the Szczawnica Spa Museum consists of 3 main exhibitions:

  - Uzdrowisko Szczawnica - 200 Years of Tradition - local healing springs and their exploitation over the centuries. The positive properties of the local waters were already known in the 16th century, but it was not until the second half of the 19th century, thanks to the activity of the Szalay family, that the rapid development of the resort began.

 - The Stadnicki family in Szczawnica - a reminder of the great merits that this family from Lesser Poland made for the town and the spa. In 1909, Count Adam Stadnicki bought the Szczawnica resort and made it one of the most modern and best in the whole of Europe.

 - How People Traveled to Szczawnica Spas - old means of transport and accessories necessary for a difficult journey through the mountains. Descriptions of popular routes, elements of carriages and chaises, suitcases, insecticidal "Persian powder" and many other curiosities.

The Spa Museum in Szczawnica has also produced a number of different publications - from various studies to book-length memoirs and guides to the area.
