City of Jesenik

The town of Jeseník is situated in the furthermost northern part of the Olomouc region. It was founded in the first half of the 13th century on the merchant route between Moravia and Poland. It became famous for gold mining and production of damask, as well as its Silesian marble. But it became ever better known for its spas.

In 1820, Vincent Priessnitz founded the Jeseník spas. He discovered the healing effects of the local cold springs. The health resort specializes in the treatment of respiratory diseases and disorders of the motor and nervous systems. On the slopes of Studniční vrch near the spa complex, there are 60 curative springs. The proximity of the Jeseníky Mountains offers an ideal way to relax either in winter or in summer.
