Tskaltubo is one of the oldest resorts of the world. It is famous for its radon-carbonate mineral springs, whose natural temperature of 33–35 °C (91–95 °F) enables the water to be used without preliminary heating. It’s usually recommended to take 14-21 days holiday-treatment in Tskaltubo. There is a nice park with small man-made lake and a bar with terrace, where you can enjoy a cool day in a hot weather.
The Spring No.6, is the largest thermal bath working today. It was built in 1950 exclusively for Joseph Vissarionovich Jughashvili (Stalin), the Soviet Union leader of the period.
Resort’s focus is on balneotheraphy for circulatory, nervous, muscular-skeletal, gynecological and skin diseases, but since the 1970s its repertoire has included “speleotherapy”, in which the cool dust-free environment of local caves is said to benefit pulmonary diseases.
