Vrdnik Spa

Discovering of thermal water in Vrdnik occurred by chance, in the thirties of the 20th century. At that time, Vrdnik was in mine. During mining,a penetration of thermal waters in the south of the mine shaft occurred. The miners found that a longer stay in the warm water helps with gout and injured tissues. They dug three smaller pools and used water as healing baths. In 1968 the water was coming into the main mine and flooded it, which resulted in the closure of the coal mines, and construction of a modern spa and recreation center.

Thanks to the ridge of Fruška Gora Vrdnik is protected from strong winds. Microclimate characteristics are small amounts of rainfall and the absence of strong winds. The thermal water has a constant temperature of 32.8 degrees Celsius which makes it a hypothermal water with a wide range of effects on the human body. Clean air with a high amount of ozone puts Vrdnik in the class of air spas.
