On June 5th Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija celebrates its 50th birthday!

Birštonas Druskininkai
Fifty years ago, on the 5th of June, Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija in Druskininkai was opened. We invite you to explore the history of the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija - how it was founded, how it has grown and improved to this day.

In 1968, the first builders came to the forest site on the outskirts of Druskininkai, in June 1972 Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija welcomed its first clients in still relatively modest conditions, and by the summer of 1974, 500 people were being treated here at once.

People came to the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija not only from Lithuania, but also from abroad in search of effective treatment and well-being recipes. In 1986, new blocks of the Žilvinas and administrative buildings, and later the second block of Žilvinas, were built to welcome more visitors. In 1993, the sanatorium was visited by an even greater number of guests after the reconstruction of the mineral water burette began, and in 1995 the state-owned sanatorium was transformed into the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija.

Since 2003, in order to adjust to the needs of clients and the increased amount of visitors from Lithuania and abroad, the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija has started a marathon of renovations. Foremost, the residential blocks were renovated, and then, in 2009, a brand-new complex Eglė+ (currently called Comfort) was opened. In this complex, you no longer have to go outdoors to get to the medical spa, the catering hall or the leisure activities – everything is now under one roof. This was a big and important step, which was welcomed by customers and paved the way for establishing an increasingly modern and contemporary spa.

The opening of the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija in Birštonas in 2013 was another milestone in the history of the sanatorium. However, with the opening of the new sanatorium, the changes and reconstructions in Druskininkai did not end. In 2018, the residential buildings A, B and C were renovated, and a glass gallery was built to connect these buildings with the mineral water pool and the spa. In the same year, the spa also introduced a new accommodation structure for its clients, with a choice of three comfort levels: Economy, Standard or Comfort.

During these years of its existence, the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija has been changing. It has become modern, innovative, expanded its range of services, and offered a growing number of new procedures, diagnostic complexes and treatment programmes. However, one thing has remained the same – Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija has maintained its tradition of natural healing right up to the present day.

A film created especially for this unique occasion will soon be released on the sanatorium’s YouTube channel, telling the story of the Medical SPA Eglės sanatorija from the beginning. It will be brought to life with stories and memories by former managers and staff who have and do work here, as well as with the many archive photographs.
