Mirgorod spa has a unique and unmatched energy aura nourished by the healing power of the local water source raising the original treasures of the Jurassic period to the surface, and by crystal-clear air, sincere cordiality of the treatment personnel and exceptional charm of the Ukrainian countryside described by the great Nikolay Gogol. The sanatorium today is undergoing active renovation along with the City of Peace (Mirgorod means “the City of Peace” in Ukrainian) in pursuit of its fate – to become one of the most popular spa resorts in Europe.
Modern sanatorium buildings many of which feature fascinating examples of traditional architecture and design blend into the grandeur of parks and the primeval beauty of birch-tree and pine-tree groves. The mellow chimes of the Cathedral of Assumption are reminiscent of old times when the famous “Mirgorod pool” and the river of Khorol lyricized by Gogol made a natural horseshoe-shaped defense of the Cossacks fort and the city hall erected as a sign of the Magdeburg right granted to the free European city back in the 16th century. Up until now the Cathedral’s golden domes shine on days and nights like a clear translucent soul. The archaic pool – or rather its small fragment preserved as memento for the generations to come – has turned into a swan lake. On its banks, immortal Gogol and his books’ characters maintain an endless old-fashioned demure conversation.
The modern sanatorium and spa complex of the Private Corporation of Medical and Rehabilitation Institutions Mirgorodkurort is based in the very heart of Ukraine, in the country’s environmentally cleanest area: in Poltava region, on the picturesque banks of the Khorol drowning in the greens of birch-trees and pines groves.

The fame of the healing properties of muds from the neighboring deposit is also universal.
