The Aurora sanatorium in Belokurikha is a place where you want to spend a vacation and improve your health

EIf you are tired of the bustle of the city, want to relax your soul and body, enjoy the splendor of Altai’s nature and at the same time heal, pay attention to the Belokurikha resort. And the best place for relaxation and recovery here, perhaps, can be called the Aurora sanatorium. Why? I'll tell you now.

First of all, the location is simply perfect! “Aurora” is located in the very heart of the resort area, on the first line, surrounded by a picturesque pine forest. From here it is close to all local attractions and entertainment. I walked out the door - and there they were, shops with Altai sweets and souvenirs, cozy cafes with aromatic coffee and national dishes, a market with fresh fruits, berries, nuts and the famous Altai honey. And what landscapes are around! Mountains covered with emerald greenery, wild rivers, clear lakes. Beauty, and that's all!

By the way, just 300 meters from Aurora there is Mount Tserkovka with a chairlift. Fans of active recreation often go there on foot - to walk through the pine forest, breathe in the healing air, and admire the surroundings. Or you can take a lift to the top to enjoy the breathtaking panorama of Belokurikha and the surrounding mountains from a bird's eye view. Believe me, the spectacle is unforgettable!

The building of the Aurora sanatorium was built in 2009 taking into account increased seismic resistance. So you can rest assured that the building is reliable. From the outside it looks modern and stylish - a kind of example of minimalist architecture. Inside, everything is also up to date - marble floors, panoramic windows, crystal chandeliers, upholstered furniture. The interiors are designed in a classic style - no pretentiousness, everything is very elegant and tasteful. The rooms are spacious, bright, with comfortable wood-colored furniture. The eye is happy!


It offers rooms of four categories - standard, comfort, studio and suite. Even the standard equipment and furnishings will give odds to other luxury suites. Judge for yourself: a double bed, bedside tables, a desk, an easy chair, a wardrobe, a safe, a TV, a refrigerator, a kettle and a tea set. The individual bathroom has modern plumbing, a heated towel rail, a hairdryer and a set of cosmetic accessories. Do you like to soak in a hot tub? Please, for you - studio and luxury rooms. They also have a soft corner and a large-screen TV. Beauty!

Cozy standard room

All rooms have large panoramic windows and glazed loggias. Do you know how nice it is to go out onto the balcony in the morning with a cup of aromatic coffee, breathe in the crystal clear mountain air, listen to the birds singing and admire the snow-capped peaks on the horizon. And in the evening, wrapped in a blanket, sit in a wicker chair with a book or a glass of wine and watch the sun set behind the mountains, painting the sky in delicate lilac tones. True romance! And if you have planned holiday in Belokurikha - reviews guests will certainly help you with this!


Have you booked a room? Forward to relaxation and adventure! The first step, of course, is to visit a doctor and undergo wellness procedures. And their choice in Aurora is truly huge. Here you will find radon baths (this is what the Belokurikha resort specializes in), pearl baths, and nitrogen-siliceous baths. The healing properties of radon waters have been used for treatment since the time of Peter I, and folk health resorts have existed here from time immemorial. Indications for radon therapy are diseases of the musculoskeletal system, nervous and cardiovascular systems, gynecological sores. You take such a bath and you feel how fatigue and pain disappear, and your muscles are filled with strength and energy.

Very popular among holidaymakers mud applications. Therapeutic mud for them is brought from the nearest lake. It has pronounced anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, improves blood circulation and metabolic processes. Particularly good for the treatment of joints and spine, diseases of the pelvic organs. The procedure, I must say, is not pleasant (you lie smeared with black slurry), but the effect is worth it.

Well, what about a relaxing massage? It is usually done after tonic procedures so that the body comes into balance. Aurora has a classic manual massage room, as well as a modern hydromassage apparatus. You stand in the shower stall, and dozens of elastic jets hit your body, stretching your muscles and relieving you of stress. After this procedure you will be drawn to sleep.

Help improve your respiratory health inhalations and speleotherapy. The latter will especially appeal to those who suffer from allergies and bronchial asthma. A speleo chamber is a room whose walls are covered with a layer of salt. There is a special microclimate, saturated with healing salts and microelements. During a 40-minute session, the air in the chamber has time to completely renew itself. You lie in a comfortable chair and breathe, breathe, breathe... as you exhale, all problems and illnesses leave you...

What if you are tormented by chronic illnesses and need consultation with a specialist? Aurora employs experienced doctors of more than 10 specialties. Cardiologist, neurologist, gynecologist, otolaryngologist, ophthalmologist, physiotherapist, exercise therapy doctor, acupuncturist - who is not here! All specialists are “registered” in the sanatorium and are ready to help you at any time. Moreover, you do not have to pay for a consultation with a chiropractor or hirudotherapist - it is already included in the price of the tour. Great, right?

In addition to medical procedures, Aurora offers guests a rich palette of spa services for beauty and relaxation. Do you want to get rid of cellulite, tighten your skin, and rejuvenate? For you - wraps based on chocolate, algae, volcanic clay, as well as anti-cellulite and lymphatic drainage massage using an LPG machine and much more. What about an Indian head massage or stone therapy? In any case, you will leave your visit to the SPA center refreshed and radiant.

Oh yes, I completely forgot about the main bonus for the fair half of humanity - beauty salon. An experienced cosmetologist will give you peeling, mesotherapy, biorevitalization, contouring, and beauty injections. And what a relaxing effect a facial massage using the Japanese Kobido method gives! Wrinkles and swelling are erased, circles under the eyes disappear, and the oval of the face is tightened. And it didn’t happen for 10 years.

But that's not all. Quite recently, a salt cave with a microclimate that imitates the conditions of real salt mines opened in Aurora. The air here is saturated with tiny salt particles, negative ions and microelements. This halotherapy is indicated for respiratory diseases, allergies, skin diseases, and chronic fatigue syndrome. One session lasting 40 minutes is enough to feel a relaxing and healing effect.

Treatment, of course, is a good and necessary thing. But what would a vacation be without fun and adventure? Don't worry, you definitely won't get bored at Aurora. The main entertainment for the guests, especially the male half, is billiards. There is a billiard room here, and you can play for free as much as you like. And let the green cloth crack from the blows of the cue! Do you love sports and fitness? A modern gym is at your disposal.

Well, if you want something extreme and exciting, go to the water park. It is called “Belovodye” and is located very close to “Aurora”. Entrance tickets can be obtained directly at the sanatorium, and free of charge. At Belovodye you will find breathtaking water slides, a wave pool with simulated surf, hot tubs, and a children's playground with fountains and waterfalls. And after water treatments, it’s so nice to relax in a Turkish hammam or sit in a cozy bar with a cocktail.

If you come with children, you have a direct route to game room. There, the kids will be met by a smiling animator and will be occupied with educational games and cartoons. Draw, make plasticine figures, dance and sing - you definitely won’t be bored. And in the warm season, all entertainment is transferred to the street - fortunately, there is a children’s playground here, spacious and safe. Swings, sandbox, inflatable pool, toys in abundance. If you want, build Easter cakes, if you want, play mother and daughter. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail. Some children don't want to leave!

Hungry after an active holiday? A restaurant with amazing cuisine and a cozy interior awaits you. Meals at Aurora are organized according to the buffet system. That is, no dull sanatorium menu or hospital food for you - only fresh, healthy and tasty dishes for every taste.


For breakfast they usually have a couple of types of porridge, muesli with yogurt, all kinds of omelettes and scrambled eggs, pancakes with sour cream or jam. For the especially hungry - sliced meats and cheeses, sausages or grilled sausages. At lunch you can’t do without rich soups, meat and fish dishes with vegetable side dishes, and fresh salads. Well, for dinner - stews, casseroles, grilled vegetables, fruits and sweet desserts.


For gourmets on Fridays there are gastronomic dinners. Imagine: chic table setting, dim lighting, lounge music. On the tables there is caviar, salmon, sturgeon, Peking duck, oriental sweets... The Aurora chef will surprise you with specialties from local gifts of nature - maral, trout, bear meat, pine nuts. All products are the freshest, environmentally friendly, grown in Altai. Real jam!

Well, after dinner it’s waiting for you entertainment. Being bored and sad is not accepted here. There is a repertoire for every taste - if you want to listen to live music, if you want to go to a disco, if you want to take part in fun competitions and master classes. Musicians, singers, dancers, magicians - artists come to Aurora from all over Altai and from other regions. So the program is different every day and invariably bright. And the guests themselves, no, no, will sing their favorite songs in chorus with a guitar or button accordion.

Well, have I convinced you that Aurora is an ideal place to relax your soul and body? Then here are a few more arguments in favor of this sanatorium.

Firstly, this is the unique nature and healing climate of Belokurikha. The air itself is medicine here. It’s not for nothing that Belokurikha is called Siberian Switzerland. High mountains covered with coniferous forests protect the valley from winds and bad weather. In summer there is no sweltering heat (average temperature +20°C), and in winter there is no bitter frost (average temperature -10°C). Precipitation is moderate, and there are more than 260 sunny days a year. This is the mild, almost Mediterranean climate.

The main natural wealth of these places is thermal radon springs. They rank first in Russia in terms of radon content. Radon waters have an analgesic, calming and healing effect, improve blood circulation and metabolism, and increase the body's defenses. Indications for treatment are diseases of the heart and blood vessels, nervous and endocrine systems, gynecological diseases, disorders of the musculoskeletal system. All this is treated at Aurora. So it’s worth going here not only for entertainment and relaxation, but also for health.

Secondly, in “Aurora” you will find a truly homely atmosphere. Imagine: cozy rooms, friendly staff, always ready to help, and very few vacationers. Here you won’t have to jostle in queues for procedures or look for a free table in a restaurant - there are few people, and the service is excellent. Many guests come here year after year as if it were their home. And all because the Aurora staff not only provide services, but sincerely care about each guest.

Third, “Aurora” is interesting at any time of the year. In winter, people come here to ski – the slopes and ski lifts are a 10-minute drive from the sanatorium. After active skiing, it’s so nice to warm up in the sauna or sit by the fireplace in the lounge. In spring, here you can admire the flowering of the maral grass, collect medicinal herbs and go horseback riding. In summer - go to the forest to pick berries and mushrooms, swim in mountain lakes and sunbathe on the beach. Well, in the golden Altai autumn, it’s best to breathe in the fresh air, wander through the trails, and admire the colorful mountains. In general, there is something to do in any season.

And finally, a few words about the cost of vacation. Tickets to Aurora are not the cheapest, but they are worth it. The price already includes accommodation, food and basic treatment. No additional payments or overpayments, everything is transparent and understandable. Of course, there are still a lot of additional paid services, but you can use them if you wish. In addition, there are good discounts for early booking and for some dates. I advise you to first study the prices on the sanatorium website and calculate your travel budget. And book, book, book – Aurora is worth it!
