Czerniawa-Zdrój is a health spa and a district of Świeradów-Zdrój, located in the dolnośląskie region. It is one of the oldest health spas in this area.
The settlement was established in the 17th century by the glasworks owned by the Schaffgotsch family. Since 1651, Czech protestants began to settle here, while trying to run away from religious persecutions. In 1782 first springs of mineral water were discovered here, which were exploited since the first years of the 19th century – at the timre, bathhouses were built, and the village
experienced rapid development. The first health spa house was built in 1860, and the current one was established in 1910.
