Dom Zdrojowy – the Spa House - this is architecturally the most interesting building in Świeradów-Zdrój and it belongs to Świeradów Health Resort complex.
The Spa House was built on the foundations of the Spring House, built in 1781, which was destroyed by a fire in 1895. The building is divided into two parts, which are connected by the longest walking hall
in Lower Silesia (80 meters). Next to it, on the terraces (160 metres), there is the so-called ‘Artificial Grotto’, where there used to be a pump room. This is also the place where the M. Orłowicz's Main Sudety Hiking Trail begins as well.
The Spa Museum, also known as the Spa Mining Museum, is accommodated in the cellars of the historical Spa House. It opened in September 2014 on the 260th anniversary of the first timbering of Świeradów mineral water springs. In the museum’s cellars, there are exhibitions showing the history of the health resort and the beginnings of the use of local springs.
Świeradów-Zdrój is a picturesque town in the heart of the Jizera Mountains at the altitude of 450 - 650 m above sea level. Already back in 1572, the Silesian doctor Leonard Thunnesser published the first description of its mineral water springs. In 1739, a special commission of Count Schaffgotsch scientifically confirmed the healing effects of the waters from the surrounding springs.
Świeradów health resort is one of the best-known Polish spa resorts. Patients are attracted by its unique healing mountainous climate and a picturesque location on gentle mountain slopes.
