I invite you to be inspired for your new trip, telling you about the Techirghiol resort which is located 16 kilometers south of Constanta, near the Eforie Nord resort, on the shore of the lake of the same name. Techirghiol is one of the nationally and internationally renowned spas, due to the healing properties of Lake Techirghiol. Salt and mineral-rich water and sapropelic mud extracted from its depths are used successfully in the treatment of rheumatism, anemia, rickets, spondylosis, hypothyroidism and other neuromotor, skin or endocrine disorders. Of course, I know I can’t wait to tell you about the beach at the resort. Here is some information about it.
The beach of Techirghiol resort takes place on the northern shore of the lake, where the entire settlement is located. Known as “Cold Baths”, the beach is small and is covered with sand. During the summer season, the beach is populated by tourists who enjoy the therapeutic effects of the mud extracted from the lake, but also relaxation, the area is quiet and protected from the specific congestion of the coast. The mud can be purchased for small amounts from street vendors operating in the beach area.
What to visit in Techirghiol?
I kindly invite you to visit the following tourist attractions in Techirghiol:
Techirghiol Lake, the largest salt lake in Romania, with a length of 7,500 m, a maximum depth of 9 meters and a salinity of over 90 g / l is known for the qualities of saltwater (mineralized) and sapropelic mud, used to treat various diseases. The invertebrate fauna that inhabits Lake Techirghiol is dominated by the crustacean Artemia salina, which together with the crystalline alga Cladophora provides the raw material for the production of sapropelic mud with active mineral components that give it a special therapeutic value.
The saltwater of Lake Techirghiol is strongly hypertonic, with a concentration of about 80g of mineral salts per liter, because Lake Techirghiol is a former sea bay isolated from the sea by a strip of sand, which led over time to a strong concentration of seawater salts, given the arid climate of the area. The lake water has total mineralization of 52 g / l. Being so concentrated, water can only be used simply in the external cure, for baths, both cold and hot in the pool or bathtub. Water exerts its therapeutic effect through its temperature, its chemical composition and its high density that determines a higher archimedean force than plain water, with a feeling of unloading the accentuated weight of the limb or body immersed in it.
Few know that the great Romanian writer, historian and philosopher Mircea Eliade loved Dobrogea very much.
He spent many years here as a child, first at Cernavoda, where his father, an infantry officer, had been seconded, then at Techirghiol.
For five years, between 1912 and 1917, he spent all summers at Techirghiol, where his father also built a house, Vila Cornelia (n.r. and not Claudia as it is often said), named after the sister of the future great writer.
