Photographer's Note

Town hall in Szczawno Zdroj - a small spa town located in the Central Sudetes in Lower Silesia (six thousand inhabitants). The town was founded about 1220, and the first healing mineral waters were discovered in 1598. Szczawno has naturally carbonated spring water and a mild climate which is mildly stimulating and moderated by the dense forested areas that surround the town.
Treatments in Szczawno-Zdroj include those for musculoskeletal disorders, diseases of the respiratory system, urinary tract and the digestive system as well as cardiovascular and metabolic complaints. The first sanatorium in Szczawno was opened in 1815. In a short time numerous facilities were built and equipped: cafes, restaurants, and mineral water pump room, a theater, a concert hall and parks with walking alleyways. Many of the older buildings have survived to this day in excellent shape, even the Spa Theatre that was built in 1896. Today the health resort Szczawno Zdroj is healing, rehabilitation and recreation centre.
