Dlugopole-Zdroj is a small village upon the Nysa Klodzka river where you can enjoy water from three healing springs – Renata, Kazimierz and Emilia.


Dlugopole has a mild mountainous climate with good solar irradiance conditions. Many sunny days, variability of oxygen partial pressure has a positive effect on cardiovascular, respiratory and hematopoietic functions. The purity of the mountain air, reduced allergen content, favourably affect respiratory diseases. The high intensity of solar radiation contributes to the mobilization of the body’s natural defences.

Landscape conditions and mountainous terrain encourage walking in the fresh air and extended physical activity of patients. Walking routes are evaluated for energy expenditure by the medical team and recommended depending on the clinical condition of patients. Various landscape stimuli bring relaxation, improve mental performance and intellectual functions.


The spa has been active since the beginning of the 19th century. Mineral springs (alkaline acidulous waters) were found accidentally in 1563 during mining searches. Until 1945, Dlugopole-Zdroj was a part of Dlugopole Dolny but its origins are not exactly known. It is known that around 1568 the ‘Gab Gottes’ mine operated there and alum was mined until the 30-year war after which the mine ceased to operate. Water with a sour taste started to accumulate in the mine excavation. The local people used it for drinking and bathing. However, it wasn’t until 1762 that a local miller erected a wooden trough for water intake and a bath tub in a nearby house.

It was not yet a spa, although drinking water was already used, mostly to make a sparkling drink with wine and sugar. The beginning of the spa can only be considered the intake of water from the source ‘Emilia’ in 1798 and the first chemical analysis of the composition of the water. It was carried out in the early nineteenth century by a known Silesian geologist Dr. Ohm. In 1802, the first cast iron baths were imported and installed. The town council of Bystrzyca Klodzka, who owned the mill and the spa area, became interested in the town at that time. However, the first major investments were carried out only in 1817 when a wooden house for patients with 16 rooms with bathrooms and a dining room was constructed.

In 1819, a wooden arbour pump room was erected upon ‘Emilia’ source and in 1834 a brick spa house was built and so the investments were completed. In 1839 the spa was sold. The new owner, Dr. Julius Hancke from Wroclaw, developed the spa to such an extent that it began to compete with the older resorts of Klodzko Land and became very popular in Germany. A park with an original stand was established, and in 1840 a new pump room was built in the neo-Gothic style.

Dlugopole-Zdroj thrived in the second half of the 19th century. In 1846 a new walking colonnade and in 1850-51 a new bath park were built. Several guesthouses were erected in that period. In 1876 the source ‘Eliza’ (now ‘Kazimierz’) was discovered at the promenade, and in 1909 another well called ‘Renata’ was drilled. It proved to be the most efficient one. In the interwar period there were 3 hotels and about 10 guesthouses in Dlugopole. During World War II the spa building was converted into a military hospital.

After 1945 there were fundamental changes in the history of Dlugopole-Zdroj. First of all, it became an independent town and in 1946 the spa began to operate again, despite the fact that immediately after the end of the war, spa and boarding houses equipment was stolen or devastated. Hotels were converted into sanatoriums and larger guesthouses were taken over by Employee Holiday Fund for holiday homes and workplaces for their facilities. The treatment profile (cardiovascular disease, female disease and rheumatism) and the range of treatments were changed to rehabilitation after hepatitis. In 1966 the administrative and organizational team of health resorts in Ladek-Zdroj and Dlugopole-Zdroj were merged. However, this did not bring the expected results, especially for small Dlugopole, due to the low efficiency of local mineral springs. Currently in Dlugopole-Zdroj there are four spa hospitals: ‘Ondraszek’, ‘Mieszko’, ‘Dabrowka’, and ‘Fortuna’, which have approximately 400 beds with full sanitary facilities and with 2 canteens. There also are guest houses, holidays homes and agritourism farms with a total of approx. 270 beds.
