Once a healing pool, today a modern wellness centre
According to an ancient legend, the first to discover the beneficial effects of the thermal waters of Dolenjske Toplice was the sexton’s dog. It is said that the owner found his injured dog at a thermal pool, bathing its injury in the warm water. The written history of Dolenjske Toplice dates back to 1228. Half a millennium later, in 1776, the Hotel Vital was built here, followed in 1899 by the Hotel Kristal. Both hotels are still open today.
