Rogaška Slatina - The city of water, glass, and wine

It is hard for one, who is born for greatness, to become mediocre. To Rogaška Slatina greatness was given long ago at birth. The first one to invoke it was, as the legend goes, the flying horse Pegasus, long ago. With the blow of his hoof he raised from the heart of the ground the mineral water with healing powers. With the water and around it Rogaška Slatina transformed herself into a beauty that has drawn many great and powerful people of Europe. Even today the healing water with the help of the modern tourist offers attracts a great deal of visitors from far and wide.
This is the city of water.

Water and earth shake hands with fire. Glass masterpieces have been created in the furnaces of Rogaška Slatina since the 17th century. 
This is the city of glass.

Beautiful landscapes, filled with rich ethnological heritage surround Rogaška Slatina. The nobility of tradition and modern trends of connatural tourism are joined in fine wines.
This is the city of wine.
