Full list of Soviet sanatoriums?

Post by callen »

Hi,

I'm going to be travelling across Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan over the next few months and was hoping to visit as many interesting/unique soviet sanatoriums as possible on my journey.
I was wondering if anyone had a full list of these or could point out any I may have missed so far? Likewise if any that I'm about to list aren't worth visiting for whatever reason or aren't Soviet then that would be useful information too.

So far I've noted the following;
Uzbekistan:
Zaamin Sanatorium - https://goo.gl/maps/DgUPfzo13FPZwPJy5
Sanatoriy "Chartak" - https://goo.gl/maps/5Rr1yrzkxM2CBQQ5A
Kazakhstan:
Kazakhstan Sanatorium - https://goo.gl/maps/i4r9cAcuQgrvDqK89
Sanatorium Alma-Arasan - https://goo.gl/maps/qocbx5dbNCXrGKbf8
Alatau Sanatorium - https://goo.gl/maps/CUH8brHhjFyvZWHq7
Kyrgyzstan:
Sanatoriy "Ysyk-Ata" - https://goo.gl/maps/9y3bsjMcr9ZWoM9v9
Sanatorium Djety Oguz - https://goo.gl/maps/T3vfHx2uK17UndSu8
Tamga Sanatorium - https://goo.gl/maps/Sw9jeP1jp5HSCGHZ7
Avrora Sanatorium - https://goo.gl/maps/mnLBnFCdwJmVorEM6
Blue Issyk-Kul Sanatorium - https://goo.gl/maps/Y4ZTamhrs5AWafhP9
Jalal-abad Sanatorium - https://goo.gl/maps/X6GFTJpn4sBE4V1P6
Tajikistan:

Khoja Obi Garm - https://goo.gl/maps/Wq45mP3yy238XijF6

Thank you.

I think listing Soviet sanatoriums across Central Asia is similar to trying to list pubs in Ireland. There are so many of them, it's going to be a struggle.

My in-laws in Kazakhstan are sanatorium enthusiasts. They've talked positively about sanatoriums in Saryagash, Pavlodar, Kostanay, Alakol. From descriptions they've given, I think they were all built in Soviet times. However, they typically sign up to some kind of tour, where their travel is included, so getting the precise location or address for these sanatoriums would be difficult.

Maybe Yandex Maps will list some of them? I tried searching there - not all of the results are relevant but some might be of interest?

I hope I'm wrong and you find some kind of resource listing Soviet sanatoriums!

I bought a copy of "Holidays in Soviet Sanatoriums" today hoping to find a few more but it didn't include anymore than I've already listed.

Yandex Maps does seem to list more of them than google so I guess I'll just use it whilst on the road to see if I can find any interesting one's around where I'm visiting at the time, thank you.

I think you have got the main ones. I have been to Yssyk-Ata and Khoa Obi Gharm and both are experiences. Don't come for the treatments, but come for the Soviet time warp! And also a bit for the mad treatments. Just don't stay too long in the water!
