History of Rajecké Teplice

Rajecké Teplice is a small town in the Žilina region, in the northern part of Slovakia, and it has only 2500 inhabitants. This part of Slovakia is well-known for its clean air thanks to numerous forests in the region. What makes Rajecké Teplice a great destination is that there is a hot spring. Already in the 14th century, people knew about its healing powers, and later on, in the 17th century, the first thermal spa was built. Back then, only the richest people could use this spa, so Rajecké Teplice became a popular summer residence for the aristocracy. After the World War, the spa town became affordable for the middle class as well, and now it is open for everyone in any season of the year.

Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty

The thermal spa called Aphrodite looks exactly like a palace from Greek mythology. All the outdoor and indoor pools are decorated with antique columns and statues. A part of the complex is also a Turkish bath, different saunas and a Kneipp path. Different kinds of massage and beauty treatments are also offered. You can spend a night in a hotel suite, which is a part of the spa or enjoy a gourmet dinner. It is really a luxury spa facility for the most demanding clientele, where they treat you like a real god or a goddess. No wonder, Spa Aphrodite in Rajekcé Teplice is ranked as one of the top European spa destinations offering a high-quality service.
