Mary’s gas, i.e. gas of volcanic origin containing 99.7% CO2, gave Marianske Lazne its name. There is no wonder because it rises only here and it was the very first local spring to be exploited. It is a set of dry stems dissolved in groundwater and thus enriching it with natural CO2. The gas itself has highly positive effects on the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and it s used for injection therapy as well as for dry gas baths. It rises from a peat basis and springs to the surface in the area of the Old Spa (Stare Lazne hotel). Today it is available in the Maria Spa hotel. More information on mineral gases.
