About the spa, in short


It is said that the ancient Romans knew about Dudince mineral water. The most famous legend about the fairy Dudinka, who saved the life of a Roman commander’s son using water from the spring, and the greatest rarity in Dudince – 32 pools carved into the local travertine stone, the so-called Roman baths – are traditionally associated with the Roman Empire. However, more sober reflections indicate that the travertine pools are much younger and were created by our great-grandfathers sometime around the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, when the local mineral water began to be used to a greater extent.

The oldest preserved references to the Dudince springs date from 1549 in a work by Juraj Wernher entitled “Správa o podivuhodných vodách Uhorska” (Report on the Amazing Waters of Hungary) and from 1742 in Matej Bel’s work “Historické a zemepisné poznatky o severnom Uhorsku” (Historical and Geographical Knowledge of Northern Hungary). In the Middle Ages, our water was used to treat rheumatism, eye inflammation, skin diseases and disorders of the digestive tract. Specialists from Vienna came to Dudince around 1890, their task being to survey the springs, which were officially recognised as medicinal from 1894 based on their results.

This underground treasure of Dudince was initially used primarily for drinking treatments – it was even exported to America and Egypt in bottles in the early 20th century! At around this time, the advertising slogan “Dudinská liečivá voda, kráľovná minerálnych stolových vôd” (Dudince healing water, the queen of mineral table waters) appeared and the first mineral pools were opened – one was created by the owner of the springs Hugo Oberndorff for his family, the second by Filip Gutmann, from whom the pool and springs were leased by Kálmán Brázzay from Budapest.
