interesting facts:
Mineral waters in Druskininkai were known quite early, but only in the 19th century, when the Czar of Russia gave Druskininkai the status of resort, the town became very popular and even fashionable. In addition, the railway Warsaw-Petersburg was constructed near-by the town. Russian managers and later Polish and Soviet were expanding gradually the network of hotels and spas, but the collapse of the Soviet Union stopped the flow of tourists. Today, within Lithuanian borders Druskininkai resort regains its fame and relaxation significance.
