Perhaps a comment on the “sanatoruim” concept is in order. These have been set up in the 30s as a way to combine relaxation and therapy. No, they are not hospitals but closer to low-intensity rehabilitation facilities. Or vacation retreats designed to provide health care. So they can and often act as hotels of family or vacation class. Often these sanatoriums are time capsules with the Soviet system at its best.
