WHAT OTHERS SAY

My experience in Slanic was like a miracle. The pain in my knee that was pretty severe when I arrived disappeared after treatment. The doctors had told me not to take too long walks, but after the treatment I even managed to climb a hill without complaining of pain. Since then I have not complained of pain, and more important lysing that my sleep has been improved after treatment and that I rarely have nightmares, which happens at least once or twice a week before.

The first thing that struck me was the extraordinary beauty of Slănic Moldova. Mineral springs, dense forests and mountains have become the source of all our interactions.
Louchan Upadhyay, artist
Rajasthan, India


When I arrived in Slanic Moldova I realized that I was in a very special place. For an Icelandic, who hasn't spent much time in a forest or anywhere else where nature is so present and tangible, as well as plants and animals, the place has been a wonderful source of inspiration.
Anna Andreea Winter, artist
Reykjavik, Iceland


The landscape of the Dobru and Nemira mountains makes you feel observed in silence, with greatness and grandeur. Mineral springs and their continuous deafness influence the way you walk and think.
Preethi Athreya, artist
Chennai, India


Slanic Moldova is a magical place. And not just for the beautiful forests, mountains, fresh water and architecture, but because of the people and dreams they never stopped believing in.
Felippe Morael, artist
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
