This article describes the life of Hippocrates, who was indeed the greatest medical figure of Hellenic arts and sciences between the 5th and the 4th century BC. Of particular interest are his works on climatotherapy, thalassotherapy and heliotherapy in which Hippocrates considers local climates, the role of the seasons and especially of winds. The article concludes with a brief description of a special hospital for medical rehabilitation Thalassotherapia in Crikvenica, Croatia, as it substantially relies on Hippocrates's experience in most treatment procedures.
