Jabenita village is situated at 6 km away from Reghin
town, at the base of Gurghiu Mountains, between the little town Gurghiu
village along the Gurghiu River valley. The village is situated in
a salt layers rich depression.
From the ancient times, the local inhabitants
used to mine the salt deposits. During the roman administration a few
salt mines had been built and exploited. After the roman retreat, as
a consequence of a mine's crumbling, a salt-water lake formed with a
surface of approximately 1000 square meters and 60 meters deep.
The salt water had been used during many
generations in order to cure rheumatic diseases. During the Austro-
Hungarian Empire, a high-profile health resort had been built over an
almost 1-hectare area near the lake for the wealthy people. One half
of the lake had a two-level wooden bottom, used by elder people and
children. The other half was used for swimming.
Due to the healing properties of the mud,
many Austrian and Hungarian health resorts had often requested it.

an approximately 4-hectares area, with peaceful surroundings, a fascinating
landscape, highly appreciated by former visitors of Jabenita village.
