Pyatigorsk is the main resort of the Caucasian Mineral Waters. Not just a beautiful city - a city with a history stretching back centuries. At the same time, Pyatigorsk is young at heart and very handsome - and is also invariably popular with travelers of any age. People go here for health improvement, outdoor recreation, active and relaxed tourism. And also for inspiration - Pyatigorsk will forever remain in the works of famous poets, writers, artists.
All-season and highly demanded, Pyatigorsk will appeal to all categories of tourists. Active travelers come here with a backpack on their shoulders - there are plenty of high and not very mountains in the area. Young couples looking for romance, families with children - Pyatigorsk is a very cozy and lovely resort. Older guests will find a quiet rest here, and gourmets will appreciate the local cuisine: Caucasian gastronomic wonders are known far beyond Pyatigorsk.
You need to start your walk in the city center, where centuries of history have intertwined. Here, side by side "live" palaces of the times of the Empire, wooden houses of the beginning of the last century, pompous sanatoriums from the era of the USSR.
The architecture of Pyatigorsk will appeal to the most picky tourist - it's easy to travel back in time on its streets. Take a look at the oldest park in the city, the famous Flower Garden, among its admirers are Pushkin and Lermontov, as well as Ilf and Petrov.
Fans of M. Yu. Lermontov's talent in Pyatigorsk will definitely not be bored. The museum-reserve of the great poet has been preserved here, you can inspect the place of his death, as well as see with your own eyes the streets that inspired the masters.
But urban architecture is great, but most travelers come to the Caucasian Mineral Waters region for another. The nature here is completely unique: Pyatigorsk got its name for a reason, it is surrounded by many peaks.
The most popular among tourists, Mount Mashuk, you can climb - on foot or using the cable car. However, both Mashuk and the legendary Beshtau are entangled in a network of eco-routes - terrenkurs, walking along them is a pleasure.
Long walks here are elevated to the degree of healing procedures - just like the pure mountain air of Pyatigorsk itself. They perfectly complement the "diet" of the sanatoriums of Pyatigorsk.
Another bonus of the resort is its convenient location. From here, it is close to other resorts of the Caucasian Mineral Waters: Kislovodsk, Zheleznovodsk, Essentuki. A little further - to the mountain resorts of Dombai and Arkhyz, the sights of the republics of the Caucasus.
Experienced travelers recommend coming to Pyatigorsk for at least two weeks - in less time you will not have time to see the most interesting.
Thus, you can have a great rest, improve your health, and replenish your "tourist piggy bank" with the most vivid impressions. Pyatigorsk is glad to all guests - come and see for yourself!
Many travelers, going on a medical vacation in Pyatigorsk, consider not only the options for health improvement in a sanatorium. But also the possibility of swimming in thermal springs. To get the most out of the procedure, you must first acquire the necessary knowledge. In this article I have tried to give as much information as possible.
Thermal springs of Pyatigorsk
Experts confidently declare: in terms of the composition and quantity of thermal springs, Pyatigorsk can be considered a full-fledged museum of mineral water. Only in one mountain Mashuk, which appeared as a result of volcanic activity, there are more than 40 healing springs. Perhaps, it is because of this that the southern side of the hill is called "Hot".
Water rises to the surface from a depth of more than a kilometer, the temperature ranges from +26 - 42 °. The cascades with which it rushes downward, forming a kind of natural baths in the cavities of the rock formation, look very impressive.
These sources were described by P. Pallas in 1793 (!). It was he who first conducted a chemical analysis of water and enlightened the people about all its beneficial properties. At one time, soldiers lived near the thermal springs. Successful baths for gout, rheumatism and skin problems.
Thermal springs of Pyatigorsk
Mineral baths (warm) have the most beneficial effect on the body:
Warm mineral waters are shown to people with neuroses, chronic overwork, and insomnia. At the initial stage of some diseases of the cardiovascular system. And also in case of malfunctions in the respiratory tract, skin problems, the musculoskeletal system, it is recommended to take hydrogen sulfide baths.
As for radon baths, you cannot do without the advice of a specialist. Only a doctor can decide how much and when you should take these specific baths. First of all, the level of benefit is determined in comparison with the negative effects of radiation. Radon waters are mainly used by patients with diseases of gynecology, ODA, metabolism. In addition, they are able to strengthen the immune system, significantly reduce the need for insulin.
It is lazy to read books, brush aside the bees that have flocked to honey, fish, learn to bake bread, ride bicycles wherever they look and see off the sunsets on the veranda of a real estate: we tell you where to look for pastoral landscapes in Lithuania. Go!
