How is the process of bathing in tanks?
The process of bathing in vats is quite simple and clear – there is a capacious cast-iron cauldron in the open air, under which the fire breaks out. The water is heated to 40-45 degrees. Stones are placed on the bottom, which will simultaneously retain heat and protect against burns.
It is important to remember that you need to immerse yourself in the health baths gradually, so the body will get used to the temperature drop. If you wish, you can sometimes take a break to splash yourself with cold water, or dive into a reservoir, especially cool when it is a mountain river. In Transcarpathia, you can find tanks of completely different sizes, which can accommodate 3, 6, 8, 10 people and even more.
Numerous reviews claim that you should visit the vats with a view of the mountains precisely in the winter season. Just imagine – it’s winter, it’s snowing, and you’re in a tank and admiring the scenery, believe me, it’s something you’ll remember for a long time! And what a relaxing and restorative effect you will get after a few days of skiing or snowboarding, plunging into warm water with healing herbs, and the view of the winter Carpathian mountains opens before you.
