The Spring City
Rogaška Slatina is a beautiful green town in Eastern Slovenia. It is known for its medicinal mineral water, spa resorts, and crystal glass. The name Rogaška Slatina literally means 'Rogatec springs', referring to the spring of mineral water. The Rogaška Slatina area has been inhabited since ancient times and a Roman road led to the settlement. A document from the Archbishop of Salzburg dating back to 1141 mentions a Roman stone placed next to the spring in the settlement. Rogaška Slatina is a synonym for health-resort tourism in Slovenia. For centuries, the curative mineral water rich in magnesium (branded as Donat Mg), the picturesque countryside, and other local distinguishing features have attracted visitors to the area. References to the springs have even been found in Roman writings.
