Water, one of life’s fundamental elements, can be found in a very wide range in our region. Due to the volcanic activities that took place tens of thousands of years ago, the Eastern range of the Carpathian Mountains is home to mineral water and mofetta gas, hidden deep underground.
According to the different sorts of mineralization, you will meet various types of fizzy and still mineral water: they differ in colour (brownish, yellowish, lime-white), smell (sulphurous, ferruginous), and taste (ferruginous, salty). You can try them bottled or directly from the source (mineral water spring).
Drinking cures can ease gastric problems and bowel complaints, while bathing cures help in treating cardiovascular diseases. For drinking cures look for the following bottled mineral waters: Malnas-Aqua Telluris, Benkő-Regina and Vâlcele.
Small mineral water basins can be found in the forest or in the glades. Be careful: the water of these traditional Szekler mineral water baths is cold, but is perfect to refresh yourself on a hot summer day!
Besides waters, volcanic repercussion is also present through mofettas (CO2 bath), a key factor for healing circulatory diseases. Being heavier than air, the uprushing CO2 is captured in pits and used for healing purposes. Patients are taking a mofetta whilst standing or sitting. A cure lasts approx. 15-20 minutes, while the CO2 takes its effect through the skin. Due to vasodilation, the patients’ blood circulation is enhanced and blood pressure is lowered. Indicated in cases of vasoconstriction and high blood pressure.
