The spa began to develop here in the 17th century and is situated between two parks where thick forest extends along both sides of the river Elbe. Its relatively low elevation above sea level (189 m), the surrounding flat landscape, stable year-round climate and spring water are the main reasons the spa is popular with patients suffering from heart disease. The tranquil idyllic surroundings are ideal for patients and hiking and cycling enthusiasts alike. Podebrady is also an ideal place for holding small conferences and meetings.
