MEDICAL TOURISM IN ROMANIA.Baile Felix – Famous Balneo Spa resort in Romania
Baile Felix SPA resort is located on the northwestern part of the country on a hills region , 9 km from Oradea town.
In 1221 we have the oldest evidence of Baile Felix , written on a Vatican’s Diploma where are mentioned the thermal waters near the city of Oradea : Oradea Termae Varadienses or Baile Oradei. The healing effect of thermal baths puts its mark on the writings of the great humanist Nicolaus Olahus , which paid for them an homage in 1536. Later,beteen 1700-1721, Felix Heldres discovers and uses the Felix source, whose name was generalized in time for the whole resort. In 1731 is done the first analysis of the thermal waters and their unique property , as we know them until today. The first written attestation about resort dates from 1763 and contains notes of a doctor regarding the building of a pool bath. In 1771 , the wooden basin was transformed into a stone basin attaching to itself and bathroom cabinets. The first building was constructed between 1766-1772. The resort begins to develp after the first modern drilling to the main source in 1885.
