Riches of drinking water and mineral springs

In Slovenia, you can scoop clean drinking water into your hands at every step. Great riches are also hidden in natural mineral springs, which have a beneficial effect on the whole body and offer refreshment as an excellent drink. Pour yourself a glass of Radenska water, which was enjoyed as early as in the time of the ancient Romans, or a glass of Donat Mg water with the highest content of magnesium in the world, which was regularly ordered by the papal court.

The natural wealth of water resources puts Slovenia to the top in Europe. Drinking water is available at almost every turn in Slovenia. You can pour it from the nearest tap or you can refresh yourself with water flowing from vibrant streams in mountains and forests. Drinking water is available at your fingertips even in the capital. There are more than 20 drinking fountains located in Ljubljana. Most of the drinking water in Slovenia comes from underground sources, where rich deposits and mineral water springs are found as well.

In north-eastern Slovenia, Radenska mineral water originates from the depths of the earth at the town of Radenci. Its springs were found in 1833 by a medical student Karl Henn, who filled the first clay bottle with mineral water in 1869. Treat yourself to a sip of refreshing water with natural bubbles at its spring in the middle of the green meadow. Other mineral water springs are located at the entrance to the Terme Radenci spa, where they use the beneficial effects of water for health purposes. Did you know that mineral baths stimulate blood circulation, relieve the heart and enhance detoxification?

Re-energize and recharge with the help of the mineral spring brought to the surface by Pegasus. Legend says that this mythological horse hit the mountains with its hoof while flying and created a movement in the Earth`s layers. Thus, the health-beneficent Donat Mg mineral water trickled to the surface. This mineral water with the highest content of magnesium has eliminated the ills of life for more than 400 years. Take care of yourself at the Rogaška Medical Centre. This health resort has maintained its spa tradition, which includes the consumption of Donat Mg mineral water, since the beginning of the 19th century. Today, this resort is the largest private health facility in Slovenia. Their speciality is balneotherapy, which examines therapy methods with natural treatments used for preventative care, therapy, and rehabilitation; the spa also provides treatments for the ills of modern times as well. Immerse yourself into the energy of mineral water!
