The study deals with Świeradów-Zdrój, one of the many spas in the Lower Silesia region. This small town of 4 498 residents (as registered in March 31, 2011) and of 20,72 km² of area is located in the south-western part of the Lower Silesian voivodeship, and in the southern part of the Lubań poviat. It is partially located in the Sudetes at 450-710 mamsl, in the Izerskie Mountains and in the valley of the Kwisa river (the so-called Świeradów Dell) and in the vicinity of Jelenia Góra. The study focuses mostly on the town's large-size spa structures, the forms they assume, the building material, their colours and age. These buildings are undoubtedly a source of the town's spa potential, as well as an element of its tourist potential, especially when it comes to skiing.
