If you have never experienced the natural wonders of a thermal spa, then Croatia is a great place to start.
Krapinske Toplice is known for its many thermal spas that have exhibited healing powers for centuries. These spas contain minerals that will help heal the body and in an all-natural manner. Typically, the Krapinske Toplice region’s thermal spas are characterized by containing calcium, hydrogen, and magnesium. The waters of Krapinske Toplice are rated as some of the best in all of Europe. Sounds good, huh?!
Because your skin absorbs the minerals present in the thermal water, they help bolster your body’s healing ability, which sounds like the perfect excuse to go on a holiday if you ask me. People who regularly take trips to thermal springs report a noticeable improvement in the following conditions:
- Neurological disorders that affect muscular-skeletal support
- Spine diseases
- Post-traumatic stress after orthopedic surgery
- Stress after narrow surgical procedures
- Advances in the postoperative state
Once your skin absorbs them, the minerals in the water go to work, repairing and providing necessary food for your muscles and nerves to begin the healing process. That is why these thermal pools are so popular the world over. There are several hidden gems in Krapinska.
Many places in this region of Croatia offer a dip in their springs for a bargain price. You get the same healing properties that are found in some of the most luxurious parts of Europe, yet pay one-third less than you would find at those other exotic locations. Let’s take a look at a few.
