Balneology is 200 years old. It needs resuscitation

The other day Andriy Malhin presented me his book Russian Riviere that was published in this year, where materials about forming of resorts in Crimea in XVIII century are systematically and competently collected. Even the first superficial acquaintance with it not only compelled me to think, but it also became a powerful incentive to start this article.

The mentioned book, the close of a summer season, the World tourism day, which was celebrated on September, 27, - are sufficient occasions for attracting attention to industry that develops very dynamically in the world, that are balneology and tourism.
