Bayramaly Sanatorium is one of the most famous health resorts of our country where not only Turkmenistan citizens but also the patients coming from all parts of the world spend their holidays and improve their health. It is worth mentioning that this is the only health resort in Central Asia and Europe for treatment of kidney diseases where the climate therapy is the main healing factor.
Located in Mary oasis next to the monuments of Ancient Merv where the air is filled with the history, the sanatorium is also considered as an original attraction of this famous place.
The history of the foundation of the health resort is very interesting. Glory of wonderful part of Turkmen land, which is filled with dryness, warmth and sun, having good healing features, went far beyond the country in the end of XIX century. Back in 1887, it was decided to build grand-ducal residence for royal family (Gosudarevo Imenie) in favourable climate zone.
Architectural image of this unique building was protected until our days. The health resort is located in the centre of the wind rose, in huge shady park of 44 hectares surrounded by evergreen trees at the height of 242 meters above the sea level in the oasis between Karakum Desert and Murgab River.
Dry and hot climate of the place, where the temperature reaches 40 degrees in the shade in summer and is on 30 – 35 degrees in spring and autumn with 10 – 35 percent of relative humidity, high insolation and evaporation, absence of rain from June to September and little of precipitation in other months is designated for healing of people who suffer from diseases of kidney, gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular and nerve systems by the nature itself.
Climate therapy remains the main method of treatment of the patients with kidney diseases until today. In particular, capabilities and advantages of aerotherapy (treatment by hot air), heliotherapy (treatment by sunbeams) and hydrotherapy (treatment by water) are widely used in this place. Full course of treatment improves state of health, rehabilitates workability, prevents progression of diseases.
According to the Resolution of the President of Turkmenistan, overall reconstruction of the building has been carried out in Bayramaly Resort. New buildings have also been erected. The opening ceremony of Bayramaly Kidney health Resort took place with participation of the Head of the State on May 5, 2010.
