Sovata is the northern settlement of the territory called Sóvídék (Salt Land), situated between the Korond stream and the valley of the Little Küküllô. It can be approached from Targu-Mures, Miecurea-Ciuc and Odorheiu-Secuiesc on the 13A main road and from Reghin on a connection road.
The first data about Sovata are from 1578. In 1583 it already was a village. Due to its warm watered, salted lakes it became increasingly popular during the next centuries. It gained the status of town in 1952.
The geological events in 1875 gave birth to the Bear Lake, which is unique in Europe, its water being heliotermic and salted, with a well-known therapeutic efficiency (for chronic gynecological symptoms, sever rheumatic pains, peripheral nervous system and post-accidental motoric diseases). There are four more salted lakes: Nuts Lake, Black Lake, Red Lake and Green Lake. Between the two wars Sovata became one of the most fashionable spas visited several times even by the Romanian Royal Family.
Sovata's surroundings are fascinating. The Bekecs Peak, the Snowed Hill, Kiscseresznyés Mountain and Zoltán Peak are the very best places for walk and tours. The salt mine at Parajd (which - beside the fact that is very interesting - it is also a cure for diseases of the breathing system, 6 km), Korond - well known for its folk pottery (12 km), the Bucin Top (20 km), and further on: the Bloody (Red) Lake (67 km), Odorheiu-Secuiesc (44 km), the Harghita Mountains (76 km), and the middle-aged atmosphere Saxon town, Sighisoara (68 km) can also been reached from Sovata.
