Special holiday selection for thermal baths
Slovenia is a country of thermal baths, and it's a tradition for people to visit them, mostly in the winter time, but during the whole year too. For the holiday season, we found some offers from Slovenian Railways in collaboration with some thermal baths. All you have to do is travel by train to the baths at your chosen destination, show them the daily train ticket when purchasing entry, and you will get various discounts.

Terme Ptuj is the right place for all seeking to recover or maintain their health, as Ptuj’s thermal springs help relieve rheumatism, treat bone and cartilage diseases, and also have beneficial effects on neurological disorders. The positive effects of Terme Ptuj’s thermal water were already known by the Romans, who founded Petovia, or today’s Ptuj – the oldest town in Slovenia.
