About Spa Resort - Sovata

Sovata is situated between the Corund River and the valley of the Tarnava Mica River. It can be reached from Targu-Mures, Miercurea-Ciuc and Odorheiu Secuiesc on the 13A main road and from Reghin, on a connection road.

The first written attestation of Sovata dates from 1578. In 1583 became a city. Due to its warm water and salty lakes it became increasingly popular during the next centuries.

The geological events from 1875 gave birth to the Bear Lake, which is unique in Europe, its water being heliothermal and salty, with well-known therapeutic effects (for chronic gynecological diseases, severe rheumatic pains, peripheral nervous system and post-accidental motor diseases).

There are four more salty lakes: Nut Lake, Black Lake, Red Lake and Green Lake. In the interwar period, Sovata became one of the most fashionable spa resort in the country, visited several times even by the Romanian Royal Family.

The resort dispose of a ski slope equipped with chairlift, teleski and babylift.
