Thermal Spas of Krapinske Toplice

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:

  • Rheumatism
  • Neurological disorders that affect muscular-skeletal support
  • Spine diseases
  • Diabetes
  • 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.

Villa Spa Magic

This little gem features private gardens and a place for you to lounge in the sun. The villa features three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a fully equipped kitchen.

Standard dining and living areas are also present on-site and bathrooms complete with complimentary toiletries and even a hairdryer. Of course, the spa is close at hand, which will offer you a great respite from the days’ activities.

  1. Hello how far of a drive is it from Split?
    Are you open maybe 17th 2018? How much is the day use ?

    Thank you

  2. Wow, these thermal spas seem awesome! One more reason to head over to Croatia! We went to some natural hot springs in Japan. Very nice and relaxing, but they might not have this healing effect, I`m not sure.

  3. I have this mad plan that one day I’m going to get a round-the-world airline ticket and go from one hot spring to the next around the world. I love thermal springs.

    This one is going onto my itinerary!

  4. I could use a thermal spa right now. This sounds like a great way to spend the day or even the weekend. Yet, another reason to visit you in Croatia. I really like the sound of Wellness Aparthotel Villa Magdalena. Welcome back from your holiday.

  5. If only we had that in Australia. It’s the perfect remedy on those days when you’re feeling lethargic and just want to relax for a day.

  6. I didn’t know Croatia has so wonderful thermal baths. I knew about the ones in Hungary, but if I think about it, thermal baths are very wide spread all over Europe, so why not in Croatia. The Bed & Breakfast in Durdan seems like a good idea if you don’t like the crowds, but I think I’d prefer the luxury of the Hotel.

    1. Ahhh yes, nothing compares with those of Budapest or that magnificent one in the cave near Egar that is for sure. But I agree the hotel sounds good 😀

  7. I miss all the thermal waters of Europe! It’s just not the same back home. Hmm maybe it’s time I make the jump again. This looks so comfy.

  8. Natural thermal pools are so good for you and such a treat to have a soak in especially after a day out in the cold. I’ve never quite managed to get on with the idea of the public onsen in Japan without my swimmers but the NZ thermal pools are lovely. On of my favourites is the Polynesia Spa in Rotorua.

  9. Croatia is becoming more and more interesting 🙂
    I had never heard about Krapinska, but if I go to Croatia it will be on my list (I have never been in a thermal spa!).
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. North of Croatia is quite rich with thermal springs. So along side Krapinske toplice, I simply have to mention Sveti Martin toplice, Stubičke toplice, Tuheljske toplice, Varaždinske toplice, Terme Jezerčica…

      1. Really, wow thanks Tom. I love learning about this amazing country. I’ll also add this info to the post for others to check out. Cheers.

  10. That sounds like such a nice way to spend the day. We went to one in Italy recently, it was so relaxing. Even with kids! 😀
