In the northernmost village of Slovakia, in Oravská Polhora, you will find a really unusual tourist attraction. The nearby springs of salt water below moutain Baba hora have made it possible to create an inhlatory in which you will breathe, similar to a holiday by the sea. It's because its microclimate is similar to the sea climate.

The principle of the inhalatory consists in the circulation of salt water, its free fall and air flow through the reed reeds, thanks to which the iodine-bromine water evaporates. When you stand by the gazebo, the smell really smells like the sea and breathing here also has beneficial health effects.

At the spring below Baba hora, from which the salt water comes, there were well-known spas at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. They treated various respiratory diseases, skin problems, tuberculosis and swelling. The beneficial healing effects of this water are still used today.
