Bathing in the Malkinsky springs is not only pleasant, but also useful. According to their composition, the Malkinsky springs belong to the Kamchatka group of siliceous-alkaline, hydrocarbonate-sulfate waters. The waters of the springs have a curative and health-improving effect in diseases of the musculoskeletal system, lesions of the peripheral nervous system, osteochondrosis, gynecological diseases, ear-nose-throat and skin diseases. In 1818, the first hospital was built in the location of the springs. Today there is a sanatorium, based on the treatment of diseases with the use of curative thermal water.
