Bujanovačka Banja Spa in Serbia

PUBLIC MEDICAL, PRODUCTION, TRADE AND CATERING COMPANY “VRELO” BUJANOVACKA BANJA

The strongest Spa in Europe!

“When man has health, he has hope. When man has hope, he has every thing!”

The hot spring and medicinal mud in Bujanovac Spa existed back in the Roman Age. Next to the spring is village Kraljeva Kuca (King’s House), which bears such name because of the rest house of King Milutin who used to enjoy the benefits of this spring.

In the past years, especially in the summers, people from all over the country come here to find medicine for gout and skin diseases.
A large swamp that smelled of sulfur and mud was both nondescript and miraculous at the same time. Children and the old, both sick and healthy, even cattle with the remains of dry mud on their bodies, enjoyed the benefits of the hot mineral water.

In the 1960′s, the authorities, helped by police, dispersed people who seeked the medicines for their illnesses in the water and the mud. The barbwire was installed and broken glass scattered all around the spring. Those more resistant, more certain of the healing power of the water and the mud, bathed by night.

NEVERTHELESS, THE NATURE WON AGAINST THE AUTHORITIES!

We started research and formed a clinic within Health Center in Bujanovac. Two indoor swimming pools were built in 1975, while the modern Institute for Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation of Disabilities “Vrelo” was built in 1984 on the Rakovac wasteland.

The referential analyses were performed at eminent Institute in Karlovy Vary, at Institute “Slovakoterme”, Pjestani spa, Bratislav. The Royal Society of Medicine of Great Britain placed Bujanovac Spa among the three most significant spas in Europe. The proofs that this spa is natural sanatorium that has no equal are the certificates issued by medical centers in London and Frankfurt.

Today, the regularity of the Bujanovac water is checked by Belgrade-based Institute “BATUT”.

WE DEAL WITH:
chronic rheumatic diseases:

  • articular and extraarticular rheumatism,
  • inflammatory,
  • metabolic and degenerative rheumatism;

  • skin diseases – eczema,
  • psoriasis;

By its characteristics, Bujanovacka Spa is the unique location not only on the old continent, but also in the world. Only at this place are three factors successfully joined: thermo-mineral water, medicinal mud and natural gas (CO2).

Today we use only one third of everything the nature gave us. Thus, there are reserves that are assigned for excellent results in prevention, rehabilitation and treatment.

Cemane, as we call the violin here, and Goc (the type of big drum) remind us of Mitke and Kostana, writer Bora Stankovic, the hammam from the 17th century, Turkish girl Aisha who – choosing between the forbidden love with a Serbian guy, Stojan, and the death by her father’s hand – chose death!

Prolom Banja Spa in Serbia

Since hurricane winds rarely but powerfully blew here, this region was named Polom.
Since even that wasn’t enough to describe the power of the storm, the people call this region Prolom (rupture), and Prolom Banja Spa.

Kursumlijska Banja Spa in Serbia

Present day Kursumlija used to be, during the time of the Romans, Ad Fines – the final station; a military station, and the Slovenes that migrated here named it Toplica.

Stefan Nemanja built two monasteries here, as well as his wife Ana’s foundation. Painted in white, covered in lead, they were noticeable from afar, so the city was called Bele Crkve because of them.

After conquering Toplica in 1454, the Turks took down the churches’ roofs and melted them into tanad – kursume which is how Kursumlija got it’s present-day name.

Since the region is abundant in numerous thermal springs, it isn’t a wonder that Kursumlijska Banja Spa happened to nestle in right there, beneath Kopaonik. This region also has many other springs that the people believe to be medicinal.

Just like it is the one at the gathering place in Guzvenik, known far and wide, where Fiery Maria appeared in 1925!
Her appearance was preceded by abundant rains, and people, their estates and animals disappeared forever in the stihia. Since then, the people come to Blaga Mara, they wash their faces with healing water and light candles.

Some do it just to pass through Bavolja Varos (Devil Town) “alive”! Devil Town is a magical, like from a fable, geographic territory on Radan Mountain, near Kursumlija.

Erosion created a collection of high and sharp rocks of odd shapes here. From afar they look like countless church towers with strange domes. Jovan Cvijic had, at one time, observed this unique geographical phenomenon and he compared it to the most fantastical shapes of the Canyons of Colorado River.

Region Prohorovo includes the Valley of Pcinje, the left confluent of Vardar River, Kozjak and Rujen Mountains and the forest scythes in the most Southeastern part of Serbia. In the center, right along Pcinje, is the Monastery Sveti Prohor Pcinjski, 28 km from Bujanovac and Bujanovacka Banja.

Prohorovo is the region with the least amount of pollution.
Mane petas montes, medio nemus, vespere fornes. If you want to be healthy, go into the hills in the morning, into the forest at noon, and to the springs in the evening.

Professor Dr. Toma Jovanovic used to say: “Europe does not have such a natural phenomenon!

Based on its characteristics, Prohorovo is a unique location on the old continent. Only here are the three factors prosperously joined – thermo-mineral water, medicinal mud and natural gas- carbon dioxide.”

A unique basis for quality honey is blight, which bees here collect from leaf to leaf, and not from flowers! Such blight honey is a reminder of its bees.

From Prohorovo come honey and honey treatments, milk and dairy products, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, monastery wine and rakija in unusually beautifully shaped bottles, meat and meat products, mushrooms, bread, medicinal herbs, medicinal peloid Parafango” and mineral waters with natural gas from Bujanovacka Banja Spa flows to different sides of the land’s pattern.

We were renovated in the period between 1883 and 1930. Since 1930 until 1941 godine, the renovation was financed by the money of the Concession-Stock company “Kursumlijska Banja”. We became a modern spa in 1982, with the construction of rehabilitation center “Zubor”.

Some other legend says that Milutin, a servant of Ivan Kosancic, spied on Turkish Army and, having returned to Trpeze, he spread the news about its huge power. In order to avoid panic among the people, Milan Toplica decapitated Milutin. Just Grave is the mark where servant Milutin was buried. It bears such name because Milutin died “to the justice of God”.
  • TRPEZE. The settlement of great importance in medieval Serbia – the remnants of three monasteries.

Gamzigradska banja spa

The Roman Emperor Galerije Valerije Maksimilijan; having discovered thermal water springs; built Romiliana with such fervor in the third century of the new era, one would think that he did it for the sake of his mother, but the facts suggest that he probably did it because of joint pain.

That is why it isn’t a surprise that the following sentence is often
recalled in Gamzigradska banja spa:

“We use nature’s gift, as did the emperor!”.

The miraculous water in Gamzigradska banja spa, the best doctors, the most modern equipment and great therapeutic powers cured and delighted many.
If you were to go into the mainland, above Bor and Majdanpek, only four kilometers from Gamzigradska banja spa you will see one of the Roman royal cities in Serbia – Felix Romuliana, and on the auriferous Pek River you will be able to participate in the cleaning of gold.

Of special value in these territories are: Derdapska Ravine, Rajkova Cave, nearby Negotin and Rajacke Pivnice breweries. Eight kinds of fish are fished here, and chamois, deer, wild boars, rabbits and wind ducks are hunted here.

Then, on parts of the clay-bottom river, larvae appear on the surface of the water, from which gentle, fluttering, colorful, winged insects are born in a few seconds, which, after a short drying period, fly onto the plants by the shore (they also land on boats and even on people) and begin their forcible shedding. They are the immature males which, only after shedding their skin, become able to mate and fertilize females.

The female larvae appear a little later, out of which sex-mature, winged units are born, and then comes the massive “bridal flight” along with the mating of the insects, after which the males quickly die. The females still fly upriver for sometime, and then they land down onto the surface of the water and lay 6000-7000 miniscule eggs and die.
