The history of this place begins with the times of the Slavic tribe Vyatichi, which lived in the vastness from the source of the Don River to the area bounded by the Oka River. According to archaeologists, the name Velegozh comes from the Greek word meaning "pagan temple". Until 1906, there was a village in which a wooden building was then built, where patients from Moscow were treated.
Health Resort Velegozh as such was founded in the 1920s to treat patients with tuberculosis. The opening of a health resort in this very place was a logical decision, since even now it is the epicenter of the healthiest ionized air in central Russia. From 1937 to 2001, Velegozh was a resort, and only in the early 21st century it became a health resort with an impressive list of medical treatment options and qualified medical staff.
