🕒 Date of last update of the article: 06.01.2024 at 9:26 p.m   |  🖋 Author: Viktor Shatrov

The village of Lumshory is located on the territory of the former Perechyn district of Transcarpathia (now part of the enlarged Uzhhorod district). The village is surrounded by the picturesque Carpathian beech-pine virgin forest. It has less than 100 inhabitants. This place has long been known as a spa resort and people come to Lumshory from all over Ukraine, as well as from abroad. People come here to “cook” in vats with healing mineral hydrogen sulfide water, which is sometimes jokingly called “Carpathian Jacuzzi”.

History of the Lumshory Vats

Lumshory resort is located at the foot of the picturesque Runa mountain meadow and has an interesting ancient history. As for the origin of the name of the village, the ancients say that “lum” used to be called tree branches, and the rows in which they were made for drying with further use in agriculture, were called in ancient times – “shory”.

Lumshory is the oldest resort area of ​​Transcarpathia. It was here, near the source of the mountain river Turitsa in 1600, that a water hospital was founded, to which nobles from all over Europe came for treatment. The first vat in Lumshory was located near a mineral water source with a high content of hydrogen sulfide and radon. This water is not suitable for daily consumption, but if you heat it and take a bath, it becomes very good for health, thanks to the activation and positive effect on humans of dissolved minerals. In the 18th century, thanks to the efforts of the Counts of Schönborn, the spa became a well-known in all of Europe “Lumshory Resort” – a favorite vacation spot for Austrian and Hungarian nobles. The picturesque hinterland is famous for its unique natural springs. It is known that more than 400 years ago, a holiday in Lumshory with its unique local water was simply indispensable and very useful in the treatment of musculoskeletal system (muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones) and had an extremely positive effect on the nervous system. In those days, vats looked like wooden barrels. They were heated by lowering hot stones into the water. When a metallurgical plant was opened in the nearby village of Turya Remeti, two quarter-ton cast iron vats were cast. After the end of the First World War, both vats were lost. Only in 1970 did Volodymyr Opiary manage to find and dig up one of the vats in the forest in the stream. The second is currently part of the exposition of the Vienna Museum. To this day, Lumshory has preserved and uses an ancient vat, which is located in the recreation complex “ U tsimbora “.

Lumshory vats nowadays

Today, vats are made of high quality cast iron, can “cook” up to a dozen people and promise amazing and unforgettable experiences. Locals throw firewood under the tub. People get into it only after the water reaches 36.6 degrees. Then it is slowly heated to 40-45 degrees. As soon as you feel that it is already hot enough – quickly jump into the local cool river, which is very close.

Such a seemingly crazy procedure will only consolidate the therapeutic effect. It really has little to do with vivid sensations and great well-being! The greatest extreme can be felt in winter, at an air temperature of minus 10ºC.

Nowadays in Lumshory and its surroundings you can find several dozen places where you can bask in the vat, but only one bath, which has existed here since ancient times, you can get a bath in hydrogen sulfide water with high radon content. Such vats are the most useful. All other baths offer vats with herbs and spruce branches, which is also useful, but does not have such a powerful health effect.
