A starting point from where to explore the town could be the ‘Papiernia' bus stop (that is if you plan to have a look at an old paper production factory now turned into interesting shopping centre) or the ‘Sobieskiego' stop which is just a step away from Sienkiewicza Street leading to the SPA Park. A walk along the streets close to the SPA Park is to take a trip to the beginnings of the XX century.
The villas located around the SPA with their spacious gardens and private parks are truly magnificent. The most beautiful ones are, for example, on Sienkiewicza Street (villa Moja, Natemi, Świt) Batorego Street (Kaprys, Eunice, Julia, Zbyszek) Jagiellońska Street (Anna, Urocza, Eloe) or Sobieskiego Street (Quo Vadis or Zameczek).
Konstancin offers accommodation in a number of hotels and there are inns which are worth a visit - if you plan to visit on a sunny weekend, book in advance! Konstancin-Jeziorna is the only SPA located close to Warsaw.
The attractions of the town are its historical villas and the SPA Park with the Graduation Tower which has been in use since 1978.
The Graduation Tower releases mineral-rich water droplets into the air which are regarded as having beneficial health effects similar to that of breathing in sea air.
The water droplets come from the top of a special wooden construction through a fountain called popularly, the mushroom.
The 6,49% brine water is pumped from 1640 meters below ground and its temperature is about 30° Celsius.
A visit here, breathing these microelements in the mist, is very beneficial for those who suffer from high blood pressure, respiratory illnesses, stress, or for those who smoke or live in a polluted environment.
It is important to remember that time spent here is controlled and limited: Up to 15 minutes close to the mushroom, 1 hour inside or up to 3 hours walking around the Graduation Tower.
Visits are not recommended, however, for those who have low blood pressure, coronary problems or have recently suffered a coronary thrombosis or cancer.
A visit to the Graduation Towers improves the body's immunology so planning a trip here to charge your batteries before going out to explore Warsaw and Mazowsze is a great idea!
