    () (Institute of Public Administration and Law, Faculty of Economics and Administration, University of Pardubice, Czech Republic)


The article deals with natural healing sources in the territory of the Czech Republic that are used in balneology and their economic impact at regional level. First of all they include the following sources: natural healing waters (e.g. mineral waters, acidulous waters, thermal springs, etc.); peloids (humolites – i.e.: peat, fen, silt, mud); gases (carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide); climate. The article aims at analysing their geographical locations according to regions of cohesion and administrative regions; the individual tables show natural healing sources in combination with indications as well and the article consequently gives a summary of health resorts in our territory, their natural healing sources and medical treatment of certain diseases.
