It is also called the Dead Sea of ​​Transylvania, as its salinity on the surface is 100 g / l, deeper 220-300 g / l. Due to the heliothermal phenomenon, its water heats up to 35 ° C to a depth of 2 meters. The highest temperature is measured at the beginning of the season, in July, which drops significantly by the end of August. The special composition of the salt water of Bear Lake and the mud on the lake shore are suitable for curing many diseases.

The town opened its first public baths as early as the late 1800s, and within a few years Sovata became so fashionable that many who could afford built villas near the lakes.
