Muszyna and its vicinity are called the Land of Gentleness. This health resort is certainly calmer than the close and iconic Krynica-Zdrój. Together with Żegiestów Zdrój lies in the Poprad valley surrounded by the mountains of Beskid Sądecki. The beginnings of the settlement in this place are connected with the trade route running from Hungary into the interior of Poland. Many monuments remain in the city and its vicinity from the medieval times and the times of the "Muszyna State". However, nature, climate and of course mineral waters are the greatest treasures of the city and the region. Żegiestów-Zdrój is a smaller but beautifully situated health resort built on a "raw root" in the 19th century. Its greatest advantage is its location on the Poprad River, between the forests of Beskid Sądecki.
