“As early as 1834, baron Herder compared our waters to the Carlsbad healing waters, known as Schlossbrun. He says that this water is lukewarm and sour, the one of those rarely found in nature, and that it contains carbonic acid, a lot of carbonic-acid iron and salty-acid sodium.
Although there is no mineral water that can be compared to any other healing water in the world, because each water contains even the slightest quantity of something that can’t be found in any other, still I think that I will not make a big mistake if I compare our Vrnjci water with the much praised warm sour water in Ems in Neusachsen – dr Josif Panchich, 1869.
