It is not surprising that “Tirvas” is translated from Lappish as “recreation”. This Health Resort Center is settled into a beautiful Khibiny Mountains valley. It is also situated on the mountain river coast, between the lakes Maliy and Bolshoy Woodyavr.

On 10 of April 1932 proletarian tourism and excursions community base was opened on the picturesque hill in Khibiny. Firstly only some simple treatments were performed there. But by the end of the 20-th century instead of a wood hut the new health resort center appeared, it was equipped with advanced medical equipment.
