Druskininkai is the best European balneology resort! (chosen by Eurepean edition of "Newsweek" magazine) and indeed, I found it true! It's great place to relax in peace and quite!
Druskininkai (Druskienniki in Polish language) is old town, first mentioned in 1636. It is spa with 12 mineral water springs, many parks, sanatoriums, health spas, two lovely lakes and old churches including lovely Russian Orthodox church built at the end of 19th century.
Relaxing and creative atmosphere of Druskininkai attracted many famous Polish and Lithuanian people before WWII, including Polish ruler, marshal Pilsudski and Lithuanian composer Ciurlionis.
The spa looked pretty empty when I was there in June 2004. There were quite many Polish medium and older age visitors there.
