Balvanyos

Balvanyos is located in the Bodoc mountains at an altitude of over 840 m. Here the air is fresh and clean, quiet and a beautiful landscape. The resort has very good treatment options, with better sources of mineral water and other natural healing factors. The spa is located near the town Sfântu Gheorghe in the district Covasna.

The lake Sfânta Ana, at a distance of 10 km from the spa Balvanyos is a lake that has volcanic origins, where rare species of flora occur, and it was declared a nature reserve.

Băile Balvanyos, as it is now, was formed by three colonies of ancient baths. One is located just beside the Balvanyos Pucioasa cave of Turia.
