Health & wellness trip

Rejuvenate in Daruvar Spa like the Roman emperors

Daruvar, the most beautiful small town in Continental Croatia has almost 2500 years of tradition in health tourism and offers excellent varieties of wellness treatments. It was the favourite destination for the Roman emperors, and it only got better over time. Now it’s your turn to try it.

The Daruvarske Toplice complex is located at the very heart of the historic public garden, just a few minutes walking distance from downtown Daruvar. Water treatments benefiting health were well known to Iassi tribes here almost 2500 years ago, later widely used by Romans and in the Middle Ages. In 1772, Daruvar stepped on the next level, and the town became a healing, leisure and recreation centre. Today, Daruvar Spa (Daruvarske Toplice) is a special health complex for rehabilitation and rejuvenation. Warm waters are also used in postoperative rehabilitation, treatment of inflammations, rheumatism, the trauma of bones, hips, head, spine, and locomotion. But, it is equally popular for wellness treatments.

During the Greco-Roman period this area used to be part of the Roman province of Pannonia, where a settlement by the name of Aquae Balissae (Latin for "strong springs") was erected due to the proximity of the thermal springs, which were often visited by Roman emperors.
