Olimia Thermal Spa
The Olimia Thermal Spa is located in the Obsotelje area at the heart of Kozjansko, in Southeast Slovenia along the Croatian border. It is surrounded by a mosaic of Alpine foothills, vineyard-covered hills and the Obsotelje plains. There are several accounts of when the beneficial effects of thermal water were discovered in this area. Oral tradition says that the Barons from Miljana in Harine Zlake had their own bathing area here four centuries ago. It is said that the Paulists from Olimje also used this warm water for its healing effects. Due to the Roman money and bricks with legion marks that have been found near the spa in Podčetrtek, there is a theory that Harine Zlake was even known to the Romans. The town of Olimje, which has been living with organised spa tourism for almost half a century, is proud to be the bearer of a gold medal in the village category, received at the Entente Florale 2009 European competition for towns and villages.
