Spa Museum


Much more than the history of Piešťany's spa culture, this wide-ranging regional museum exhibits Roman artefacts, gorgeous art-nouveau posters from the last century and intricately embroidered folk costumes. Look out for display cases of crutches, supposedly left behind in Piešťany after the thermal waters worked their magic.
