Soviet Era Health Spas


What was once a mighty Empire, almost 25 years later, it no longer exists but there are still some monumental buildings, especially Sanatorium or Health Spas, that were spread across the USSR before its disintegration. Though the Soviet Union was dissolved in 1991, its markings are clearly visible across all 15 countries. Photographer Michal Solarski went across a few countries such as Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan and even newly separated Crimea, to find out the order of Soviet Era Sanatoriums. He found out that 25 years of time has not made much impact on the state of these old health spas and that people still visit there to relax and to get treated. Though the treatment is done with old traditional equipment, the patients seem to trust the methods completely. The architecture, interiors and statues of late leaders reminds one of the lost era.
