Successful Season at Slovenian Natural Health Resorts

The performance of Slovenian health resorts exceeds expectations. In the first six months of 2015, the number of domestic visitors to Slovenian spas increased by almost 10 percent compared to the previous year. Foreign guests, particularly those from Russia, contribute to the increase as well. Slovenian natural health resorts are among our greatest tourist attractions. 14 natural health resorts invite you to take advantage of their excellent medical and wellness services.

In Slovenia, thermal and mineral waters heal, invigorate and nurture. Nearly 100 natural thermal springs with water temperatures ranging from 32 to 73 degrees Celsius and 14 natural health resorts are among the greatest tourist attractions in the country. Their visitors are predominantly domestic guests. Compared to last year, overnight stays by Slovenian visitors increased by 5.7 %, while overall visits increased by 9.7 %. Counting both domestic and foreign guests, Slovenian spas recorded 320,415 visitors. The majority of foreign guests come from the neighbouring Austria and Italy as well as from Russia and Croatia. The increasing numbers of guests from the Netherlands, whose visits and overnight stays increased by 13 and 16% respectively compared to 2014, should also be pointed out.

Many health resorts are reporting better operating results and higher sales prices, which are a key measure of the overall result.
