The healing effects of thermal water were already known to the ancient Romans, who
in 39 BC. n. No. hot and cold water pools were built on the same site.
Marble sacrificial shrines and vow monuments dedicated to nymphs and the Roman goddess of health, Valetuda, have been found on the site of the bathing area.
The Roman Baths were first mentioned in a written document from Oglea in 1486, but really came to life after 1840
. In that year, Gustav Adolf Uhlich
, a Trieste wholesaler, bought them on behalf of his wife Amalia, as he had been cured by the beneficial effects of the thermal water here.
After 1848, the Roman Baths were visited by many distinguished guests, such as Princess Victoria of England and Crown Princess of Prussia, Napoleon's sister Princess Murat, the Austrian writer Franz Grillparzer, the Serbian writer Vuk Karađžić, Emperor Ferdinand, Archduke John and many others.
During World War II, the German army occupied the Roman Baths and converted them into a hospital for its soldiers. From the end of the Second World War until 1991, the Yugoslav People's Army managed the Roman Baths. At that time, only a closed circle of officers enjoyed the healing effects of the thermal water and the beautiful surroundings.
Today, the Roman Baths
are a modern spa with a world-class wellness centre and medical programmes
that evoke ancient Roman stories and legends in their architecture and names.
