Thermal springs, health resort and wellnes

The renowned Istrian thermal springs (www.istarske-toplice.hr), located in the middle of the Motovun forest, from Roman times were known as a thermal resort with healing waters. The main thermal spring St. Stjepan, springs from the foot of an 85 metre high rock face and the temperature of the water reaches 36˚ Celsius.

Here diseases of the pulmonary organs, locomotor system, post operative conditions relating to bones and joints, some chronic diseases of the throat and skin, as well as gynaecological diseases are treated. The majority of Istrian hotels even in earlier decades offered various facilities and activities to relax the body and soul, like sauna, pools, fitness halls and massage services, however in recent years there has been a real “boom” with the opening of well equipped wellness centres. From year to year there are an increasing number of wellness centres throughout Istra and the wide range of services offered include anti-stress therapy, colour and aroma therapy, a wide variety of baths, ice baths, solarium and sauna and a variety of medical and cosmetic treatments. Thailand and shiatsu massages, Finish, Roman and Istrian saunas, Turkish baths, whirlpools with waterfalls and underwater massages…have become a recognisable part of the tourist offer in Istra.
