The questionnaire was « in the footsteps of Sliac ». By pairs, the French and Slovak pupils had to find different solutions around them in the nature. They had to walk all around the spa resort and find the answers , they could ask people in the streets, look around, read the notice boards. The spa town of Sliacis one of the most interesting places in the Hronvalley. Until the present day SliacSpa has been famous for over 770 years for the therapeutic benefits of its unique mineral springs. The carbon dioxide that emerged from the spring and flooded the surrounding area was a mystery. A constant temperature of 33.2°C, and the highest possible concentration of carbon dioxide are unique benefits.
The Spa Spring is used in all spa treatments without any artificial modifications. The water is mineralised with sulphate, hydrogen carbonate, magnesium and calcium. It contains large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) and has a constant temperature of 33.3°C. The Stefanik Spring (formerly Jozef) is the coldest spring, with high levels of carbon dioxide and iron. It helps to cure digestion and relieves anaemia. The Bystrica (originally Dorothea) Spring is recommended for stomach diseases. The LenkeySpring can help to relieve diseases of the eyes and thyroid gland. The Adam spring is used to treat bladder diseases.
Pupils had the greatest respect for nature and its gifts and for this reason our core philosophy is harmony of body and mind in the unique relationship between the human and nature and its healing resources.
