Polanica Zdrój is a charming spa town situated at the foot of the Bystrzyckie Mountains. In spite of its inconspicuous size it is an important place on the medical map of Poland. It is from Polanica Zdrój where the development of the plastic surgery in Poland began.

Polanica Zdrój has a unique atmosphere and charm that will delight everyone. Its unique location makes the summers warm and winters not too severe. The surrounding forested hills also have a mitigating effect on the climate.

“The forest is said to be a great ally of medicinal waters, which together with them promotes the healing process. Therapeutic effects of staying in the forest can be clearly seen when people need rest, worked and neurotic. ” (Based on. Bedeker Polanicki, Z. Franczukowski)

The town is walkable, with a beautiful park, common areas, and many restaurants.  We have built the program to include accommodations in several small and excellent hotels around the hospital.  All can walk to and from the hotels and hospital.  Imagine small, winding streets, mild hills, with woods all around.  Dress appropriately and you will enjoy immensely!
