Mud from Piešťany has an exceptional therapeutic effect on rheumatic disorders and some neurological disorders and is applied in the form of mud wrappings. The first spa house was built after the Napoleonic wars in 1822. It still stands and is referred to as the Old Spa or Napoleon’s Bath.  Several hotels in the Art Nouveau style were built in the area at the beginning of the 20th century too.
