Terme Ptuj

Life in ancient Ptuj was much like that in other Roman cities.

The patricians went to the thermal baths to relax and care for their

bodies with daily bathing, and exchange the latest gossip.

Medieval Ptuj also had public baths, mentioned in 1311, furnished

with wooden tubs and buckets. The public baths had permission

to perform minor surgical procedures, apply leeches, administer

enemas, and shave men. The tradition of baths was revived in the 19

th

century when a spa was built beside the Drava River that along with

pools offered steam baths, showers, and private cabins with tubs.

Foreign visitors seeking to experience healing baths began to arrive,

and by the 1960’s it was clear that the spa had become too small.

The solution was to drill, not for oil, but for thermal water.

And the story continues…
