If you have ever been to Slovenia, you probably know that no trip will ever be complete without trying a Slovenia spa.
Since the Roman era, the one-of-a-kind hot mineral waters of Slovenia were an epithet for health in Europe’s royal courts. Through the centuries, people pampered and basked themselves in the thermal Slovenian springs. The soothing effects of these springs have given character and distinction to the towns that are currently living with them.
Right under the rich heritage of Slovenia and its gorgeous sun, several registered natural spas and health resorts were developed. If you feel like you can use some pampering, here are some of the spas that you might want to add to your list:
Even the Ancient Romans were familiar with the mystical strength of the thermal springs of Laško. The medicinal effects of the area’s thermal spring have been proven through a lifetime experience of treats of the chronic spine and joint inflammation, hypertension, disability of extremities, and heavy injuries. Thermana Laško boasts of a great tradition that spans 156 years. Amazing, isn’t it?
