The Pannonian Sea heritage includes a special type of medicinal petroleum, only the second such find in the world and the only in Europe. Curiosity is also iodine, fluorine, and sodium chloride thermal water that has the temperature of 65 C and is found at 1300 m under the ground. Represents an important natural medicinal agent.
Medicinal properties of these two agents made it possible for Ivanić-Grad authorities to build a modern health resort, unique in Europe and the world, where skin diseases are successfully treated including psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, eczema and other.
