The Spa Island originated by a natural way, by the main Váh river-basin and its circumferent branches. As far as no boundary banks were built, the Spa Island was regularly flooded.
Before more than 200 years were built the provisionally boundary banks and a marshy soil was dried. After that a building of the first spa hotels started and the Spa Park was created.
After the building of a new boundary bank and a regulation of the Váh river-basin in the interwar period was marked reduced a flooding risk. A building of the Colonnade bridge – for the pedestrians, and the Country Bridge for a traffic, was an access to the Spa Island easier.
After more than 200 years history of the various developments, are nowadays situated at about 60 hectares large Spa Island four spa hotels with their own therapeutic centres – Thermia Palace, Esplanade + Alameda (previous Palace), Splendid + Eva (previous Grand) and Pro Patria. In addition to the spa hotels there are The Napoleon Spa, the large thermal swimming pool Eva, golf course, the Congress Hall and other small buildings and spa facilities, which you can see in these photos:
