Rogaška Health Resort
Rogaška Slatina is an old health resort town in East Slovenia near the Croatian border. It is located on the edge of the winegrowing hills of Kozjansko, in the embrace of three hills – Boč, Donačka gora and Plešivec – and surrounded by rich forests. Legend has it that the winged horse Pegasus drank from the Rogaška springs on the orders of Apollo, who told Pegasus to strike open Roitschocrene, the Rogaška well, with his hoof and drink from the well as it was “a source of health and real divine power”. The health resort truly flourished in the second half of the 19th century, when Rogaška was enjoying a golden age under Count Ferdinand Attems and was visited by ruling families and members of the high nobility. This select clientele was entertained by some of the foremost artists of the age, among them the Hungarian Romantic composer and virtuoso pianist Franz Liszt.
