VOLGOGRAD, November 6 (Itar-Tass) —— More than 11,000 people a year will be able to use the services of a balneotherapeutic health resort on Lake Elton in Russia’s southern Volgograd region after an overhaul, a spokesman for the regional economy committee told Itar-Tass.
According to the spokesman, the overhaul will be over in the first quarter of 2012. “The total volume of investments stands at 988 million roubles, of which 700 million have already been used,” the spokesman noted.
As of now, a new building of the health resort, a technological line for supply of therapeutic muds, hotels, five two-storey cottages, engineering infrastructure and water treatment facilities have already been built.
Built back in 1910, the Elton health resort is Russia’s oldest balneology resort. The lake is located in the Volgograd region’s Palassovsky district, near the border with Kazakhstan.
With an area of 150 square meters, Lake Elton is Europe’s biggest salt lake. In terms of therapeutic mud mineralization, it is 1.5 times superior to the Dead Sea.
