Complex Klimkovice Spa care is proposed by the practitioner on the recommendation of a specialist. A proposal for a revision is examined by the revision physician from the health insurance company, who decides on whether the client has the Spa paid for from public health insurance claim according to medical indication. The client then comes to the Spa within three months after the approval. After certain procedures, such as the operational replacement of large joints, Klimkovice sanatoria organise a direct transport from a hospital bed, because this can speed up the rehabilitation. Health insurance may also reimburse the treatment only in the framework of contributory welfare, in which case the client will pay the accommodation and dining. A General Practitioner or a specialist can also propose ambulant rehabilitation at the Spa, which doesn´t have to be approved by the revision. The Klimkovice spa also offers package holidays for self-payers, in which the doctor prepares hospital rehabilitation program after agreement with the client according to his current state of health. You can also choose from a wide offer of stays compiled specifically for the elderly, managers, women or for people with sedentary jobs.

Diseases of metabolic disorders Diabetes mellitus Part of Sanatoria Klimkovice is a children’s hospital, the only one in the Czech Republic which uses iodine bromide water for treatment of children with mobility impairments, neurological or gynaecological illnesses. In addition to the application of these effective medicinal resources Spa focuses on individual physical education, during which physiotherapists use various rehabilitative methods with regard to the status and needs of the children. The children’s hospital has a swimming pool, hydrotherapy, electrotherapy, ergotherapy, a gym, where the child patients participate in group exercise. During the season they have the option to take hipotherapy. During a stay in the sanatoria children attend school, which is part of the complex, and is completely accessible to disabled people as well as other parts of the children’s hospital. After returning home the students do not need to catch up on what their classmates have learned, because at the Spa teachers adapt their teaching according to their capabilities. The school also has a computer classroom with connections to the internet; logopaedic counseling and kindergarten are also available. Since 2012, the first in the Czech Republic, Klimkovice introduced a unique rehabilitation method for children ranging from one to 17 years old, during which the child practises with a physiotherapist for several hours a day in a special suit. It is a system of supporting elements, which are interlinked by elastic belts, where the suit, with great precision, corrects the movements and posture of the patient. The system has developed in Russia during the space programme for the purposes of rehabilitation and it was perfected at the American Rehabilitation Clinic in Michigan with the use of neurogenesis. The rehabilitative method must be edited completely individually for each client, but it brings results, even in cases where everything else has failed. It is effective on the damaged central nervous system, for example for people with developmental disorders, leading to the motor disability of patients with brain damage after an inflammatory disease, craniocerebral injury or after a brain stroke. It is also applicable with the sick with hyperkinesis, which is the increased involuntary mobility of muscles, and in particular with patients with children’s cerebral palsy. The method leads to improvements in motor functions and the trained abilities endure after the end of rehabilitation. The Spa also provides special orthopaedic programmes for children with scoliosis and increased osteoporosis.There is a gynecological programme for girls, too, which serves as a prevention of abdominal adhesions, which may impede pregnancy in adulthood.

Culture and history

In Klimkovice, history goes hand in hand with the present, which is evident mostly in the architecture. The name of the city probably derives from the founder of the original settlements with the fortress of Klement, called Klimek. In the 14th century the city fortress was promoted by Beneš from Kravaře, who also granted city rights and city arms to Klimkovice. In the 15th century it was dominated temporarily by the Dukes of Opava and from 1451 the knight kin from Bítov. At the end of the 16th century knight king Bzenec left a mark on the city‘s history. It was Ondřej Bzenec who built a castle and a church in the years 1578-79. From the year 1600 the city was ruled by Vlčkové (later Wilczkové). Count Jindřich William Wilczek reached one of the largest distinctions and political ranks at the Court of Vienna. In the 19th century the city was struck by two devastating fires which destroyed much of the centre of the town, including the Church of St. Catherine. During the German occupation from the autumn of 1938 the city was called Königsberg, and despite being of Czech origin, it was incorporated into the German Empire. During the liberation by the Soviet army and the First Czechoslovak Tank Brigade in April and May 1945 part of the town was razed and the castle struck by fire. Out of 578 houses only 43 remained undamaged. Klimkovice, which lies in the District of Ostrava, since 1997 by statute has been designated a Spa town. The town wants to associate its modern history with the development of the spa industry. Klimkovice spans over 1 423 hectares, including the parts Josefovice, Hýlov, Václavovice and Mexiko. The city also includes a tunnel, located directly on the motorway D1, which was put into service in 2008. It is the only tunnel on the highway section leading through the Moravian-Silesian region and the second longest on the Czech motorway network. It is intended primarily to reduce the impact of traffic on the environment. The tunnel consists of two tubes which are 1076 and 1097 metres long. Construction of the highway meant a significant shift in the development of Klimkovice, with the city now easily accessible from all directions. Moreover, Klimkovice took advantage of the completion of the highway and the sliproads at both ends of the town and as the first in the Czech Republic declared the centre a low emission zone, to prevent the transit of trucks and passenger vehicles with high emissions. It will be valid from the year 2014. By doing this the spa town hopes to maintain its pure air, comparable with the air in the nearby Beskydy. Klimkovice was previously connected with Ostrava by railway track and there was also a tramway track between the cities. Currently you can use the regular bus lines number 53 and 64. There is no large industry in the town, local people work mainly in services and manufacturing, also agriculture. The largest employer in the territory of Klimkovice is the spa with 300 workers. The rest of the town‘s residents commute to work, in particular to Ostrava and the surrounding cities, and return to Klimkovice for a pleasant, peaceful dwelling. Klimkovice boasts a rich cultural and social life. There is a branch of the Museum of Novojičínsko in the castle, where permanent exhibitions are held of the history of the town and the life of writer Helena Salichov, who spent a certain period of her life in Klimkovice. In the premises of the castle there is also a cultural and information centre, which is open daily from Monday to Saturday and provides information about events in the city and in the surrounding area, the possibilities of accommodation and dining, and the sights and attractions of the region. The town´s public library has existed since 1920. It took up the activities of the Klimkovicke Readers Association, which had organized the lending of books among the local inhabitants since the start of the 19th century. The traditional meeting place of the citizens of Klimkovice are the Petr Bezruč Park, wide-angle cinema Panorama, the square, where regular markets and fairs take place and the premises of the former swimming pool. Although the baths have so far failed to be restored, the area is used for firemen races or the raising of the maypole.
