FIRST HISTORICAL REMINISCENCES
The first recorded reminiscence about one of the oldest Transcarpathian resorts dated back to the 17th century. In his letters the local priest Danyil Srednyanskyi often mentions the Derence Zholobovne bathing hut, in detail describing the system of wooden chutes, through which big baths were filled with mineral water.
For the fastidious noble visitors, in accordance with their needs, there was built a big palace with towers and terraces, where they enjoyed recreation after taking baths.
In various periods of its existence the health resort was visited by the well-known Hungarian composer Ferenc Liszt, the first President of Czechoslovakia Tomáš Masaryk, the politician Edmund Egán, the Prime-Minister of the autonomous territory Pidkarpatska Rus Avgustyn Voloshyn and many other known and respectable people.
