The beginnings of the balneary treatment in Turda date from 1840, when doctor Iosif Hanko lays the foundations of the Băile Sărate Turda resort by developing the Roman lake. The Durgău lakes have been used since the 9th century for balneo- and trial- based therapy, with minimal amenities. Chlorosodium mineral waters have been used to treat rheumatic diseases, peripheral circulation disorders, and gynaecological conditions.
Durgău Salty Lakes – lake no. 4 (Ocnei lake), in 1927
The high content of sodium chloride (kitchen salt) in the water of the lakes (10% at the surface, 28% at 30 m depth) makes the phenomenon of heliothermia very intense. The development of the Ocnei and Rotund lakes in Durgău was a first step towards the complex exploitation of the therapeutic potential of the area.
With a long-standing tradition, in the summer time, mineralized lakes formed on old salt exploitation sites offer tourists a wonderful place of recreation and relaxation in a natural setting. For added comfort, sandy beaches, wooden docks, showers, and a bar with terrace have been set up.
