Health and recreational complex “Thermal Waters” Kosino “is located on the plume of mineral thermal waters, which extends through part of the territory of such European countries as France, Italy, Spain, Serbia, Croatia, Austria, Switzerland and the Balkan Peninsula. In Ukraine, this plume covers a large part of the Transcarpathian region, namely Vinogradovo and Beregovo districts.

The healing water of the resort rises in one of the three currently operating wells in Transcarpathia called 16 Т. Back in the 80s of the last century, Soviet geologists accidentally discovered it in search of oil deposits. The hot geyser of thermal water is directed through a well with a depth of 1190 mand falls straight into the thermal pool with a temperature of 40-45°C.

All over the world, each of the sources of thermal water has its own specific composition and temperature: from low-saturated warm minerals to too hot and concentrated for the human body. The Kosino source (at the well exit) is optimal in terms of chemical composition and water temperature.

The thermal water of the Kosinо spring has a general health effect and has a beneficial effect on the body, filling it with the necessary for normal functioning substances and trace elements:

  • iron, which is contained in the red blood cells and carries oxygen to the cells;
  • calcium, which is the main building material of bones;
  • potassium and sodium, necessary for muscle contraction, including cardiac muscle;
  • zinc, which is necessary for the synthesis of vitamin E in the body, and therefore affects the condition of the skin, hair, nails; responsible for male sexual function;
  • chlorine, which is responsible for the normal functioning of the nervous system;
  • selenium, which is used for the formation of thyroid hormones;
  • chromium, necessary for the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism, normalization of blood sugar levels;
  • copper, which is a bactericidal element and stops inflammation in the body;
  • vanadium, which slows down the synthesis of cholesterol in the body;
  • magnesium, which is necessary for the synthesis of proteins, is important in the work of the nervous and cardiovascular systems, helps to eliminate cholesterol from the body.

Useful properties of this thermal water are witnessed by experts of the “Ukrainian Scientific Research Institute of Medical Rehabilitation and Health Resortology of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine”. According to the balneological conclusion №99 of December 12, 2006, the thermal waters of the Kosinо аre intended for external use in the following diseases:

    • musculoskeletal system: arthrosis, osteochondrosis, arthritis, polyarthritis, consequences of joint fracture, postoperative condition, diseases of the articular tissues;
    • diseases of the cardiovascular system: hypertensive disease I-II stage, with circulatory disorders not higher than I st.;
    • peripheral nervous system: injuries of nerve endings and plexuses, diseases of the nervous system, sciatica, polyradiculoneuritis;
    • peripheral vessels: atherosclerosis of vessels of the extremities, endarteritis with circulatory disorders of the lower extremities of the I-II degree, acroangioneurosis, varicose veins;
    • biliary system: chronic cholecystitis with cholecystitis, biliary dyskinesia, condition after cholecystectomy.

The recommended stay in the pool is 15 – 20 minutes. 3 times a day.

Contraindications: diseases in a state of exacerbation.

Acid-base balance: pH – 6.08

The level of mineralization: 8.5 – 11 g / dm3
