Its natural richness includes radon-active mineral waters, mud bath resources, climate and spruce bark used in medical care.

BRIEF HISTORY
The beginning of the Balneological Society in Poland dated back to 1858 when Professor Josef Dietel, the director of the Jagiellonian University, established the Balneological Commission in Krakow. Soon the commission exercised significant influence on the work of many Polish spas. The National Spa Company had an influential role as well. At the same time, balneological departments were established at Medical Societies in other partitions (1876- Poznan, 1870- Warszawa).

As a result of this effort, the Polish Balneological Society was established in Krakow on January 15, 1905 with Professor Ludomil Korczynski as the first president. In the same year, the society started to publish the scientific yearly “The Memoirs of the Polish Balneological Society.” They were published under this title until 1935 and for the next four years, they were issued as “Acta Balneologica."

The Balneological Society led a dynamic cooperation with many similar international societies. Prof. Jozef Jankowiak who was the director of the Balneoclimatology Institute and president of the Polish Association of Balneology, Bioclimatology and Physical Medicine for many years, facilitated this international cooperation.

The current president of the Association is Prof. Irena Ponikowska, who is the chairman of the balneological department at Medical University of Bydgoszcz Academy and Consultant to the Minister of Health on Health Resort Medicine. From the last Polish Congress of Balneology held in Sopot on Sept 2001, the Association has decided to shorten its name to the Polish Association of Balneology and Physical Medicine.
