As a medical place, Tskaltubo was already known in the 12-13 centuries. In the Charters of the Gelati Monastery, dating back to 1245-1250 years, the area was referred to as “… the baths, adjacent to the village of Maglaki”. The first mentioning of Tskaltubo resort in the European press appeared in 1782, in the “Proceedings of the Berlin Natural History Society”. Since the beginning of the 19th century, the materials about the miraculous mineral water have been intensively printed in press, where the resort was compared to Vildab (Germany) and Teplice (Czech Republic) resorts. In 1920, the resort became the property of the state, and was officially given the status of a Spa- resort.
Over the years the resort was visited by many famous persons. Among them was Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser (July, 1968). The Soviet leader Joseph Stalin had his personal room here, and visited the place on a regular base during the years of 1931- 1951.
Currently, Tskaltubo has several bath buildings, including Spring # 6, the so-called “Stalin’s spring”, the largest and best-maintained. During the Soviet period up to 30 sanatoriums and rest homes functioned here, including sanatorium “Shakhtior”, which had a throughput of up to 500 campers at a time.
