Unspoilt nature, culture and traditions make Transylvania a much-loved tourist destination.

Discover its unique natural treasures! Moreover, Sovata is an internationally-recognized health and spa resort that has become famous for its salt lakes. The Romans were the first to mine salt in this area. Holes in the rock were filled with rainwater and springs, which resulted in the lake system visible today. Bear Lake is the most famous of these formations, which was named for its shape. Because of its extremely high salt content, bathers can float on the surface of the helio-thermal lake, which is unique in Europe. In addition to this delightful experience, the thermal water offers gentle relief for musculoskeletal and skin diseases, and is used for inhalation treatments as well. The mud can be especially recommended for gynecological complaints.

 
Accommodation at Romania’s most picturesque site provides a perfect base from which to discover the whole region. Enjoy the crisp mountain air and take a walk in the surrounding forests. Discover Sovata’s churches, the former Romanian royal summer palace and the beautifully carved gates. You also shouldn't miss Lake Gyilkos (Killer), Bikaz Canyon or Dracula’s Castle during your stay. 
 
Bear Lake
Bear Lake is the only 'helio-thermal' lake on the continent. Because of its high salt content and resulting floating effect, it is often referred to as the 'dead sea' of Transylvania. In the summer, the water temperature on the surface is between 20-25°C, and 35-40°C at a depth of 2 metres, making it a perfect experience in which to float and totally unwind in beautiful natural surroundings.
