Published: 9.1.2019
Today we will take you to the peaceful area of Zamaguria, which stretches in the northeast of Slovakia. We will visit Cerveny Klastor Smerdzonka baths, where healthy mineral water flows since ever. Rumors of the healing water under Tri Koruny (982 m.) beagn to spread as early as the 14th century, when Carthusian and later Kamaldul monks from a nearby monastery used it for their healing practice.

Cyprian, the "flying monk" who, among other things, managed the monastery's pharmacy. Thanks to his knowledge of medicine or pharmacy, local mineral water has become known in the wider area. His lifelong work was a herbarium consisting of 283 plant specimens.


After the monastery was canceled, the local miller in the barn began to provide hot bath baths from Smerdjon in the early 19th century. The water was first heated in the boilers to put it in the wooden tubs. He made his visit so pleasant and shortened his waiting for the people who had come to him to soften his flour. The local miller became a small pioneer, and the spa of Smerdžanka was not used primarily for healing, but also as a form of relax. A few years later (around 1820) dates back to the establishment of the spa settlement and the original Lazne pod Tremi Korunami. Over the decades, the baths have survived a number of ups and downs, and after World War II they have disappeared. Time has proven the beneficial effects of unique water, clean air, and the positive effects of the Pienin enchantment itself on the human organism.Fortunately, Lazne Cerveny Klastor Smerdzonka has continued in the tradition of our ancestors since 2012.
