Cure for Wellness

A truly unforgettable visit; the most impressive baths I've ever entered. Located in one of the oldest bathing spa resorts of the country. The town is known for its hot springs with natural healing minerals such as sulfur, calcium and magnesium. The building itself was built in the late 19th-century. Designed by a Hungarian architect for the Austrian Emperor who after his visit noted that the town is "the most beautiful resort on the continent". His wife; the queen wrote down in her diary that the "Baths are a distinct and delightful presence".

Sadly, at the end of the 20th-century, the buildings got neglected and have been decaying ever since. Luckily, there is hope. A group of young architects started a project in fight for the preservation and reconstruction of the health resort. Many people have supported the project already and renovations within the town already started.

The building has four long corridors. Each with its own color. This clearly was the red corridor.
