About Truskavets

Truskavets, which is located in the west of Ukraine, is a tourist destination famous for its mineral springs. It is very close to the border of Poland. The city located on the border of Lviv Oblast is known for its thermal waters healing for various health problems. The city, which is home to some of the best hotels of Ukraine, is visited by a great number of domestic and foreign tourists who want to benefit from the healing power of the waters every year.

Especially the sulfur-scented, slightly saline “Naftusia” plays an important role for the popularity of this city. The town situates on an attractive valley in the Carpathian foothills and can be easily reached from Lviv by bus or train.

The name of Truskavets, which is usually the choice of the Ukrainian and Russian tourists, was first seen in the written sources in the 1400s. Although it is known that some small settlements were also established in the region before this period, the popularization of the city dates back to the following years.

The first thermal bath in the city, which is located on a very lucky geography in terms of thermal waters, was opened in 1827. Afterwards, thanks to the thermal facilities and hotels that started offering service one after another in the region, the region became one of the first places coming to mind when it comes to health and SPA tourism in Ukraine. At the beginning of the 1900s, over 5 thousand visitors were coming to Truskavets every year.

After the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the region remained under the rule of Poland for a certain period of time. During this period, numerous thermal facilities were built in Truskavets and the leading names of the country visited the city.

Today, Truskavets has many other attractions in addition to its spas and thermal waters.
