The most well-known medicinal spas of Vojvodina.
In the year 1907, before anyone even mentioned the word “spa” in Kanjiža, only two wells existed that were used to provide drinkable water for the animals. As time went by, the stock increased in size, and eventually the water supplies were running very low. After a while, the shepherds asked for the construction of another, third well, one that would make things simpler. In the following year, 1908, the third well was made. The well’s water was of a yellow colour and the gas that came out of the pipe was flammable. Because of this, the people named it “the well of wonders”. This year, the spa will be celebrating its 110th birthday. The spa offers a wide arrange of programs for its guests, such as one-on-one or group medical therapy, algae skincare, chocolate-mint skincare, relaxing massages, etc. In addition, the spa also offers therapy for the prevention of osteoporosis, mud baths, electric, thermal and magnetic therapies, and so on. For those individuals who are looking for somewhere to eat after a relaxing stay at the spa, the place also has a great restaurant. There is a wide choice of traditional recipes on the menu, and there is something even for the picky eaters. This place is a perfect choice for a weekend with the family.
The Spa in Pačir is a new facility that has been working for exactly four years. The water supplies for this spa differ from the other ones in the area, since the water does not come from a conventional well, but from an artificial lake. This lake is 2000 square meters wide, and it is filled with geothermal water. The water that breaks out from the ground is explicitly hot, 72 degrees Celsius to be exact. When the scorching water reaches the lake, it cools down to 28-32 degrees Celsius, which leads to the separation of salt (NaCl), Lithium, Iodine, Bromide, Fluor and Sulphur (in a small amount). Due to all of this, the water becomes very beneficial for those guests who suffer from a variety of illnesses, such as skin, bone, and breathing problems or inflammation. The recommended bathing time is approximately 25-30 minutes per session. In addition to this, there are two other pools available as well, which are of 35-36 degrees Celsius in temperature. The pools that are available in the facility are suitable for children of all ages. There is a restaurant available as well, which will leave the hungry guests full and satisfied.
