Druskininkai

3 km

In the olden days local villagers noticed that the salty water from the springs next to the river had healing qualities and they used it to help heal wounds. A local dynasty of folk healers called Sūručiai (aka Sūrmiesčiai, Suraučiai) is well documented. The word druskininkas means a person extracting and dealing salt. Various sanatoriums of the interwar period and their unique architecture lets us imagine those lazy mornings watching the river Nemunas and sipping coffee. That was a luxury which holidaymakers in Druskininkai resort were able to enjoy as early as in the 1930s.
