Interesting facts and useful information

RICH, LONG HISTORY

The history of Birštonas dates back to the 14th century, when it was first mentioned in the reports of Teutonic scouts as “a farm next to some briny water”. Over the next two centuries, it became the favourite vacation spot of some of Lithuania’s top statesmen and other prominent figures. In 1529, Birštonas obtained its town privileges, and in 1966 was granted the status of a town under republican jurisdiction. The resort itself, however, was founded as early as 1846, soon after becoming known among Russians, Poles, and Lithuanians for its rejuvenating mineral water and healing mud procedures. Since then, it has developed into a major hub for tourism, culture, and recreation.

CERTIFIED MINERAL WATER

The bromine-rich mineral water found in Birštonas has been officially certified across Europe, which is a source of pride for the town. Its plentiful deep springs offer locals and visitors alike a unique opportunity to sample and enjoy quality mineral water drawn at different spots, including the pump-room of Vytautas Park. You can also purchase it bottled in local and global retail stores under the trade names Vytautas and Birute.

HIGH QUALITY SPAS

The resort has multiple SPAs offering visitors a wide variety of top-quality therapeutic, rejuvenating, wellness, and relaxation procedures. These include full-body massages, sauna, yoga, swimming, and countless others tailored to each visitor’s individual needs and preferences.
