The name comes from the Lithuanian word ''druska'' which means salt. There are 12 mineral springs and their water is used for balnaeological procedures and drinking. Spa mud baths, applications and tampons are prepared from the peat extracted at ''Didžiasalis'' bog in the neighbouring district. The resort climate is another positive health factor, it is characterized by a high level of air ionization (-0.63), a gentle and warm microclimate (average low temperature in winter about -6°C, average high temperature in summer about +20°C, relative humidity 70%, prevailing SW winds with an average speed of 2 m/s). A special feature of the resort is its air enriched with phytoncides of surrounding vast pine forests that have a significant impact on a successful course of treatment. There are 8 spa/rehabilitation centres and 2 spa centres within the ''Druskininkai Aquapark'' complex.
  
Druskininkai is a town which upholds sanative resort traditions for more than 200 years. Inartificial natural factors - mineral water, curing mud, great climatic conditions, kindly and cosy environment, and various entertainments will allow You  to forget everyday cares and to relax from stressness

Latest revision as of 17:41, 22 August 2013

Druskininkai is an official resort in Lithuania since 20 Jun 1794 when King Stanisław August Poniatowski declared it a sanatorium area.

Understand[edit]

The name comes from the Lithuanian word druska which means salt. There are 12 mineral springs and their water is used for balnaeological procedures and drinking. Spa mud baths, applications and tampons are prepared from the peat extracted at Didžiasalis bog in the neighbouring district. The resort climate is another positive health factor, it is characterized by a high level of air ionization (-0.63), a gentle and warm microclimate (average low temperature in winter about -6°C, average high temperature in summer about +20°C, relative humidity 70%, prevailing SW winds with an average speed of 2 m/s). A special feature of the resort is its air enriched with phytoncides of surrounding vast pine forests that have a significant impact on a successful course of treatment. There are 8 spa/rehabilitation centres and 2 spa centres within the Druskininkai Aquapark complex.

Get in[edit]

By bus[edit]

Regular buses from Vilnius and Kaunas are the way of getting here with the ticket setting you back in the region of 20-30 LTL. There is no railway line to Druskininkai. The one that can be seen on the older maps is inoperative.

Basically there are two companies operating on Vilnius-Druskininkai and Kaunas-Druskininkai routes: 'Kautra and Druskininkų AP (Druskininkai Bus Fleet).

Both the Vilnius and Kaunas buses take approximately 2.5 hr and depart every 1-2 hr 05:30-19:00.
