Techirghiol, is a small Romanian town on the Black Sea famous for its therapeutic mud. The thick black mud (highly-concentrated sediment rich in organic matter) found at the bottom of the lake is particularly effective in the treatment of arthritis, musculoskeletal disorders, skin ailments and detoxification, and beneficial for overall well-being. Residents of the region have been coming here their whole lives.
