Salt treatment as an impulse for industrial towns’ function change
Languages of publication
The article discusses the healing properties of salt and its application in various methods of spa curative treatment. The discussion serves as the background for presenting the origins of Polish and foreign spa resorts which are now able to function due to making use of post-industrial salt making facilities – mine working pits and brine graduation towers. Special emphasis has been laid on the character and consequences of the transformations of salt making towns, where industrial salt production has given way to spa treatment activities.
