With pleasure, I invite you to come and see Mangalia, a city in continuous development, which in recent decades has successfully acquired the attribute of a spa resort. The sulfurous mesothermal springs from Mangalia are capitalized in the treatment bases with recognized results in the amelioration of the diseases of the skeletal system and the recovery treatments.
Being first of all a municipality and then a resort, Mangalia offers tourists various leisure opportunities: beach, visits to museums, monuments and fortresses that present the history of places, water entertainment, shows, festivals and cultural events.
Mangalia has become a spa resort. After 1990, the authorities started large projects for the development of cultural tourism, and in this sense, several events are organized every year – Callatis Festival, Young Actor Gala, Literature Days and Nights Festival, etc.
The resort has two modern treatment bases within the Mangalia Hotel and within the Mangalia Sanatorium, destined for recovery. The treatment base within the Mangalia Hotel is equipped with its treatment facilities: four pools for physiotherapy with sulfurous water, a section for electrotherapy, two sections for hydrotherapy, a section for pneumotherapy, medical gyms and massage parlors, geriatric offices, laboratories for analysis and investigation, acupuncture cabinets, heated seawater pools, etc.
