Romania's Medical Spas - Eforie Nord

Eforie Nord, Romania - Medical Spa - Therme

Spa Highlights

The waters of Lake Techirghiol are five times saltier than the sea.

Eforie Nord is located on the Romanian Black Sea coast, nearby Lake Techirghiol, whose waters have long been held as cure for arthritic, rheumatic, internal and nervous system disorders.

Eforie Nord was established in 1894, when a clinic first opened here.
Later, under the patronage of King Carol I (1839 – 1914), a health resort sprang up. Besides the sea air and sun, another curative factor is the rich, black, sapropelic mud – knows locally as namol – from Techirghiol Lake.
Today, Eforie Nord treatments include mud baths as well as world-famous Gerovital and Aslavital original rejuvenation treatments.
