Nature has generously awarded Jūrmala with unique medicinal resources. Jūrmala is a balneological and a climatic resort - here you can find both healing mud, as well as a mild maritime climate combined with the pine forest air rich with phytoncides. Here the subsoil hides sulfurated, bromide and sodium chloride mineral water, which has created large underground reserves of therapeutic peat, and you can find precious sapropel mud in the lakes.
Jūrmala is known as a medical resort since the late 18th century, when the research of folk medicines such as hydrogen sulfide springs, peat and sapropel mud allowed to set up the first healing institutions in Ķemeri.
