The land of lively bubbles

Discover the land by the Mura under the wine-growing slopes of the beautiful Radgonsko-Kapelske gorice. Radenci boasts over 250 days of sunshine a year, perfect for outdoor activities. These sunny days create ideal conditions for growing vines and producing the best sparkling wine in Slovenia. However, the area is also famous for a different kind of bubbles: the bubbles in the Radenci mineral and thermal water, each with its own unique health benefits. Visit us to bask in the sunshine and enjoy these beneficial bubbles.

How Dr. Henn founded the Radenci Health Resort

As a young medical student travelled through Radenci in the 1830s, the coachman drew the burbling springs to his attention. “Can you hear how it bubbles today?” the coachman asked. Some thirty years later, in 1865, that same man – now the respected physician Dr. Karl Henn – returned to Radenci, determined to dedicate his life to the “mineral champagne” of his student days. After years of trials, he finally capped the mineral water well, and some years later began building the thermal baths.
