Borsec History Museum

Borsec is a town famous for its mineral waters, the Borsec History Museum examines and celebrates this unique history.

A very informative guide explained the history and future plans of Borsec. (open by appointment only)

Once traveled to from afar, the town was known for the spas and sanatoriums that had the ability to cure the ill thanks to the healing properties of the water. This is a reputation that the town is trying to regain as they slowly begin reconstruction and new buildings with the help of funding from both the EU and Romanian Tourism Board. They are also working towards creating a ski resort in Borsec.

The water was originally transported in clay vessels and then later in glass. Borsec had its own glass factory that created the water containers as well as other items. Now of course, plastic is used.

The water is the life of Borsec, and is continually wins awards as one of the best in the world.
