Opis

According to its geographical position, the territory of the municipality of Rogaška Slatina is placed in the eastern part of Upper Sotelsko. The area consists of low-lying hills, hills overgrown with vines at the foot of Boč and the valley of the border river Sotla. The whole region is to a large extent cut off from the Zasavje region, the Celje Basin, and the lower Savinja valley. The Rogaška springs were already known in ancient times and in the Middle Ages. The records from the beginning of the 17th century state that the Rogaška springs were visited by Wolf Ungnad, the son of the governor general of Styria, in 1598. In the middle of the 17th century, the Croatian “ban” Ivan Zrinski was cured by drinking Rogaška mineral water. In the second half of the 19th century, some people had villas built not far from Sveti križ and the new town became known as Rogaška Slatina. At the turn of the century, it was organized as one municipality, then later as the municipalities of Rogaška Slatina and Rogaška Slatina with its surroundings. After 1927, the Abel family opened a glass factory on the outskirts of the town, transforming the local glass-blowing trade into an industry, resulting in population growth. In the 1960s, the town started to spread northwards and the nearby Ratanska vas became a part of the town. Since then the population has grown tenfold. With its size, and even more with its economic potential, the town has become an important centre attracting more people to come and live there. The number of jobs is equal to the number of inhabitants. Tertiary activities and the educational system are constantly being developed (two secondary schools, a business training college, a catering college). With the reform of municipalities in 1994, Rogaška Slatina became the centre of the municipality once again.
