Our beautiful sandy beaches, quality hotels and spas, prestigious mud spas and water parks have been attracting and welcoming thousands of tourists for years. Estonian spa traditions go back hundreds of years. One of the reasons why such resorts appeared here was the local mud, which is known for its healing properties, which is still used today. Pärnu, Haapsalu, Kuressaare and Narva-Jõesuu have been fashionable resorts since the 1820s, Värska, Kubija, Pühajarve, Toila, Viimsi and, of course, Tallinn boast excellent spas. Eesti Spaaliit stands for high service and quality. ESPAL currently has 16 members.
The development of spas in Estonia was facilitated by the local mud deposits with good healing properties and the interest of local doctors in health mud and the possibility of applying therapeutic bathing in medical practice. Estonian resorts began to develop in the middle of the 19th century, they reached the full speed of their activity at the turn of the century, and their development lasted until the First World War.
