Naleczow

Due to its beneficial microclimate and the mineral water sources, Naleczow has long been a spa and health resort offering the ultimate conditions for recovery, relaxation and active forms of leisure. As well as the patients who come here to receive treatment for heart disease, this garden-like small town regularly attracts other visitors in search of beautiful scenery and an unspoiled environment. And there are many eye-catching examples of architecture for you to enjoy in Naleczow, all adding to the attractiveness of this town.

Naleczow TOURISM

The real centre of Naleczow is the extensive and charming spa park, with its great selection of tree types and distinguished by several monumental sanatorium buildings and the Malachowski Palace. The heart of the park is, of course, the lake. There are both historical and modern sanatoriums as well as places to stay located on the border of the park, enveloped by lush greenery. The town’s main avenues are flanked by numerous old trees and there are many painstakingly renovated wooden villas and other residences, many of which are of architectural interest. The parish church, on the edge of the town, has an interesting cemetery beside it.

Since the 19th century, Naleczow has been a favourite place to visit and to work in for several famous Polish writers: Zofia Nalkowska, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Stanislaw Przybyszewski, Stanislaw Witkiewicz, Stefan Zeromski and Boleslaw Prus. The last two have museums in Naleczow devoted to their literary achievements.

While the climate continues to be an important factor in the treatment provided in Naleczow, today the full range of possibilities offered by modern balneotherapy is used in the care of patients with circulatory system diseases. The therapeutic properties of the natural mineral water, whose chemical composition can be compared to the spa waters, have been highly appreciated for the past two centuries. Naleczow mineral water is bottled and available as the well-known “Naleczowianka” and the lesser-known “Cisowianka” brands.

A settlement existed here as early as the 14th century, but at the time it was called Bochotnica from the name of the nearby Bochotniczanka River. In 1523 the ownership of the area passed into the hands of the Samborzecki family. From that point, the settlement’s history took a turbulent turn. First, the town went through the tumultuous period of the Church Reformation and then, at the turn of the 18th century, it found itself in an economic crisis caused by numerous wars in the area.
