How about a healthy hot dip?
Profuse reserves of thermal waters belie the area at the foot of the Tatras: Poland’s only rocky mountains. Little wonder that thermal baths offering not only a wealth of relaxation options but also stunning views have developed throughout the region.
You are welcome to choose the one that suits you best: the Aqua Park in Zakopane may offer colder water (30°C–32°C/86°F–90°F) and tempt you to a regular swimming pool with lanes, recreational pools, hydromassages with spouts and cascades, as well as an outdoor recreation and swimming pools with a breath-taking view of the Tatras.
As, like all the others, it is designed for leisure with the whole family in mind, there is also a paddling pool for children with a pleasant slide.
Speaking of slides and children: the one in Szaflary Thermal Baths offers three parallel tracks for you to plunge into the pool together. In turn Szaflary – Gorący Potok offers hot (34°C–40°C/94°F–104°F) sulphur baths modelled on ancient Roman ones, as well as outdoor pools for swimming, and hydromassages.
Individual spas offer saunas, mud baths, and a plethora of beautifying and relaxing treatments. The Bania Thermal Baths in Białka Tatrzańska even have a graduation tower to permeate the air with a delicate mist of curative brine.

As it comes straight from the underground deposits, all the hot water in the baths and pools is natural, and so are the minerals: motes of the rocks dissolved for eons. The heat is a remnant from the distant volcanic past of the area.
Thermal waters offer more than just the pleasure of relaxing in a hot bath: the health-boosting minerals they contain are more easily absorbed in temperatures over 20°C (68°F) and water temperatures in Małopolska thermal baths reach 36°–38°C (c.100°F).
