Who does not know Rogaška
Slatina and its 350-year-long tradition and rich history? Just an hour’s
drive from Ljubljana, this boutique tourist town invites people seeking health
and relaxation. In respect of the oldest Rogaška Slatina spring of miraculous
water, the richest in the world in magnesium content, Rogaška Slatina will host
numerous events by the end of summer.
The legend describing the emergence of the Rogaška spring has
been written down and depicted in the copperplate engraving of the German issue
of Roitschocrene book from 1687. The image in the book shows Apollo ordering
Pegasus to strike his hoof to the earth in a place near Rogatec, thus opening
Roitschocrene, the Rogaška spring. The story resembles the legend from the
Greek mythology where Pegasus opened the Hippocrene spring by striking his hoof
to the earth. In the Rogaška legend, Apollo says: “Where you stand is a source of health and true divine strength.
Instead of Hippocrene, drink the Roitschocrene spring before you.”
The Tempel Pavilion, which is the work of architect Nikola Pertsch from
Trieste, is a classicist pavilion standing above the former main spring. The
Tempel spring, also called the “main spring”, was one of the first of its kind
and was known as early as in 1680. The oldest Rogaška Slatina filling plant was
erected next to it. As the most important spring, it served Rogaška Slatina for
2 centuries until 1884, when a new spring was arranged only 35 metres away. The
oval-shaped Tempel Pavilion standing on 12 elegant Ionian pillars is today the
venue of various cultural events.
