Medical Tourism in Crimeea 27 Nov 2018

Few places on earth have as many spas, sanatoriums and clinics as the southern shores of Crimea – a tradition going back some 200 years. No less importantly, Crimea remains a bargain. Perhaps, most significant of all for medical tourists is the remarkable health dividends. Select sanatoriums are marrying into state-of-the-art nutritional solutions for reversing chronic, inflammatory illnesses – cardiovascular diseases, prostate and breast cancers, Lupus, psoriasis, gout, arthritis, MS, and early stage Alzheimer’s.

Crimea’s tradition of modern, medical tourism is traceable to Alexander I, conqueror of Napoleon and master of continental Europe, who voyaged to its shores with Empress Elizabeth after her physicians ordered her to leave St. Petersburg and move to a warmer climate. They bought land near Yalta in 1825 on which the Oreanda manor was built. Since then, all Russian emperors, their family members and Russian aristocracy came to Crimea to revitalize health and well-being. Mark Twain stayed in Yalta as a young man. Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin divvied up the world near Yalta, in “Livadia,” the week of Feb. 4-11, 1945. It was the palace home of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. 

Dental work is highly professional with quality on par with the United States and Europe, yet it costs a fraction of the price. As a rough gauge, the price for extracting a wisdom tooth is - in Crimea. Massages, skin care, mud baths, manicurespedicures, haircuts, etc., will cost about 5-10 times less than the equivalent in the United States, except in upscale hotels.

All of these make from Crimea a possible international destination for medical tourism which worths to be promoted and known in all thr world.
