Since December 19, 1634, thanks to the local priest Daniel Srednyansky, the old names of the baths have been known. In those days it was called “Derentse Trucks”, “Derenza groobornia”, “Derets silver vaserovna”, which is an additional confirmation of its healing properties.

In the documents of the Habsburg dynasty, dated 1692, the Derenewski water is called “Derenus Zilbers wasser”. It is this name that can be seen today on the ancient coat of arms of the bath. During the uprising of the Kuruts in the confrontation between the Transylvanian prince Ferenc II Rakoczi and the Habsburgs, “Slatino” (as the resort was called) in 1705 was destroyed to the ground.
