Today we visit the district of Puchov with the newest spas, water reservoir, forest and beautiful nature. In case you guessed Nimnica as our point of interest, you were right.
Nimnica is situated between the towns of Puchov and Povazská Bystrica. It is situated on the right bank of the Vah. You realize how beautiful is the nature around right when you arrive. Surely, it charmed our ancsetors as well when they were settling in the area. Archeological findings are proof for that. The first written note about the town comes back from 1408. The then inhabitants were engaged in farming and growing orchard trees. During the years 1949–1957 there was a radical change. Then the Nosice water reservoir was being built. Another name for it is Mladeze dam. This construction is now part of the cascades of Vah and operates to balance the river flow to prevent floods. Also, it generates electric energy. Apart from its technical operation people use it as a place to relax. You can catch fish here, observe birds, make cruise or do some water sports.
The construction helped to discover the so called "mysterious water." in 1953, a strong stream was discovered by the dam operators. Research found strong presence of carbonic water. It has strong healing effects and the public soon learned about it. Strong demand for the water worked as incentive to build spas here. The salty water of 10 to 15 degrees Celsius cures digestive tract, blood circulation system, breathing or muscles. Even oncological illnesses or illnesses inflicting women have been cured by this water.
Gradually, the spa expanded and its services did too. In the present, they offer comfortable accommodation, great meals (there is even a chalet nearby), enough parking spaces, and a great and unique environment.
