Salt Water

Kolobrzeg has been famous for its salt waters since 7th century. There was hamlet on Wyspa Solna (the Salt Island) and its inhabitants brewed salt. Therapeutic properties of  salt waters were discovered at the beginning of 19th century  and they are used to this day in balneology. This is salt water spring at Solna St.
----------
Kołobrzeg słynie ze swoich solanek od VII w. Na Wyspie Solnej znajdowała się osada i jej mieszkańcy warzyli sól. Właściwości terapeutyczne solanki zostały odkryte na początku XIX w. i są wykorzystywane do dziś w balneologii. A to jest źródło solanki na ul. Solnej.

  3. That's pretty interesting. The artist Alexander Calder once made a fountain out of mercury. I've always wanted to see it.

  4. I often add salt to hot water and use it for healing things...I bet these waters would be even better.
