Brusno spa lies in the lovely mountainous region of Central Slovakia, in the upper Hron River valley north-east of Banská Bystrica. In the village the healing mineral springs were discovered in 1829. Nowadays the patients are treated here for diseases of the gall bladder, bile ducts, liver and pancreas, as well as certain diseases of the motor organs. Treatment in Brusno Spa is based on its natural curative mineral water.
Accommodation can be provided for patients in single or double rooms in the Poľana (opened 1985) and Paula sanatoriums. For those who come as tourists, though with the intention of taking advatage of the mineral waters, accommodation is available in private houses.
The spa´s location in a mountainous region offers attractive walks for visitors in their free time. In the spa area there is a forested park with many paths, a chapel from the year 1910 and the 15th century church built in the Gothic style.
