The beautiful natural environment of the Strážov Mountainsin Western Slovakia and the healing thermal springs, make the spa of Trenčianske Teplice one of the most popular and most visited spa resorts in Slovakia. It is its unique position in the middle of nature with hot springs that gave the spa its nickname “the pearl of the Carpathians”.

The reputation of this spa derives from its five medicinal springs of hot sulphuric water which emerges from the earth at 36°C to 40 °C. The Hammam bath in the Sina spa building is decorated in oriental style of Turkish baths from the end of the 19th century, and its lavishly ornamented arcade is highly interesting. Like the majority of Slovak spas, Trenčianske Teplice became an important cultural centre of national and international reputation. The Music Summer held in Trenčianske Teplice is the oldest international festival of chamber music in Central Europe. However, the most popular event now is the film festival, Art Film, which has been taking place annually in the second half of June since 1993. The Gold Key is awarded for best film and during the final ceremony, and the winner of the Actors Mission actor imprints their palms in the Bridge of Fame in front of the Flora Hotel. During more than a decade of festival history, movie stars like Franco Nero, Gina Lollobrigida, Geraldine Chaplin, Annie Girardot, Sophia Loren, Ornella Mutti, Jean Paul Belmondo and others have left their palm imprints here.
