A World of Relaxation Awaits You
With an extensive coastline and long borders with other European countries, Croatia has long been the sponge which has soaked up the cultures and customs of many of her neighbours, often adopting them as her own and providing a very Croatian touch here and there.
A day of enjoying many of the health facilities that Croatia offers is one of the great pleasures of this country.
For tired explorers there could be nothing better than soaking in a hot tub or easing sore muscles with a traditional massage.
And, of course, the custom of bathing in public and the use of steam rooms have been popular pastimes in many countries for generations, first recognized as a treat for sore muscles by the Romans, it was popularized by them and spread quickly throughout Europe.
These traditions persist today, and after a long day of exploring the coastline, either on foot or by bike, a spa is a marvellous way of revitalizing yourself. And with the inexhaustible energy of the stone, the sea and the woods, energizing your body, you can relax and leave your cares behind you in the most natural way you could imagine.
For those travellers who have existing medical or health problems, you will find that you do not need to leave behind the treatments you would normally undergo.
There are many places which specialise in bone and joint therapies for knees, elbows, hips and wrist problems. Muscle pain therapies, connected with cartilage, tendons and ligaments can also be treated in one of the many centres that can be found in most of the larger towns and tourist areas.
And with a plentiful supply of natural sources of healing mineral waters, innovative naphthalene therapies ideals for your skin, modern and yet affordable dental clinics and premium wellness centres, Croatia is also a top destination for medical and health tourism.
Most wellness centres in the country also offer relaxation services such as spas, mud packs, Aromatherapy, bio bath with four-limb massage and many others. In fact, anything you would expect to find in any luxury hotel spa in your own country, can also be found with just a quick phone call and a short walk or drive.
And if all you really want to do is relax, Croatia does that too. You can lie back and soak in a hot-tub, delighting in the fragrances of sage, lavender and rosemary while gazing out at the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic, or immerse yourself in the aroma of a scented forest as you sip a glass of fine wine, leaving all your worries for another day.
When you decide to indulge your body on your vacation there’s no better place to do it than in one of the wellness centres. They are the perfect complement for your Croatian escape at any time of the year, so make sure you make this a part of your Croatian adventure.
