Mineral water Rogaška

The source of health and well-being

All the good things come from the inside. The unique geological composition of the Rogaška surroundings contributes to the creation of mineral water that contains the highest magnesium percentage in the world. The Roitschocrene  mineral water from Rogaška originates in the center of the most tectonically diverse region in Slovenia, where there are three regional tectonic faults. This unique geological and  hydrogeological composition is an invaluable source of two natural springs of mineral and thermal water that spring from a depth of about 600 and 1700 meters. The thermal water, which has been used in the Rogaška spa for centuries, and mineral water, which is especially rich in magnesium and other useful minerals, spring from melting rocks rich in magnesium, calcium, sulphates and bicarbonates, with the help of natural gas.

The ROITSCHECRENE mineral water from Rogaška: the legend lives on

Legendary at the creation and still legendary. Pegasus, the mythological creature, is the creator of this invaluable spring. The legend has it that the spring of the Roitschocrene was created by the winged horse of the Greek mythology, Pegasus. In the legend, following Apollo's orders, Pegasus struck the land in Rogaška with its hoof, opening the spring of Roitschocrene, from which the mineral water, which contains the highest magnesium percentage among all the mineral waters in the world, bursted out. In this solemn moment, Apollo spoke out the famous words: "Where you now stand is the source of health and the true divine power. Instead of Hippocrene drink the Roitschocrene, the Rogaška spring that is in front of you!" A moderate advice that comes from the god of healing, sun and poetry.
