The thermal spa in Topusko became well known across the European continent thanks to professor Michael Kunnits, who first described the spa in 1826 in a letter to Francis I, the Austrian emperor. His book “A Historical and Topographical Description of the Mineral Baths in Topusko” was published a year later. Topusko became a popular destination among the European elite in the next 100 years. Nobles, military commanders, bishops and other rich guests from France, Italy, Great Britain and Germany would come to enjoy the fresh air and curative waters.
This is not surprising. After all, the thermal waters in Topusko are ranked third in terms of quality in all of Europe. The temperature of the water emerging from the springs is 68°C and it helps significantly with all rheumatic and neurological diseases, paralysis, strokes, osteoporosis, sciatica, pre- and post-operative treatment, women’s diseases, sterility, broken bones, etc.
Welcome to Topusko!
