Refference to the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries
Elegant interiors of our building and product graphics refer to the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries – the period of discovery of our mineral water sources by Antoni Mateczny. It was a time when Art Nouveau reigned art supreme. Visiting Cracow Mineral Springs you can feel the extraordinary atmosphere of the turn of the centuries and indulge in tasting water served in tasteful ceramic mugs or cups, surrounded by park nature. It is also possible to purchase bottled water, spilled on site, in specially glazed rooms that allow observation of the entire process.
Who was Antoni Mateczny
One of the fathers of polish balneology, primaly Anton Matečzny
Czech by origin - settled in Podgórze (separated town until 1915; current district of Krakow) at the end of the nineteenth century. In 1898, unexpectedly during construction works, he came across a specific in smell source of sulphate water. As a regular visitor to Czech SPAs, he was well aware of the extraordinary importance of his discovery. After confirming the healing properties of water, already in 1905 he created his own health resort, which enjoyed great popularity, not only among the inhabitants of Podgórze. Antoni Mateczny's Sulphate and Brine Water Baths, like today's Cracow Mineral Springs building, was located in the surroundings of the green Spa Park, in which there were alleys with benches, gazebos, and even a picturesque fish pond with a bridge over it. It hosted the inhabitants of Krakow and the surrounding area, artistic Young Poland bohemians, and even such celebrities as Baron Götz-Okocimski or Archduke Habsburg from Żywiec.
Implementation of an innovative technology for treating mineral waters from the Mateczny deposit
based on the results of the research work carried out
Project goal: Providing sources of naturally healthy mineral water from the Mateczny deposit with unique features on a global scale, due to the content of bioelements and minerals, and above all due to the proportions they maintain among themselves.
