Rimske Toplice

Thermal Spas · Historic Sites
Rimske Toplice is a settlement in the Municipality of Laško in eastern Slovenia. It lies on the right bank of the Savinja River on the road from Celje to Ljubljana via Zidani Most. The area was traditionally part of the Styria region. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Savinja Statistical Region.GeographyThe location of Rimske Toplice is surrounded by wooded slopes of the nearby mountains, providing shelter against wind and summer heat, and supporting rich vegetation of exotic plants from all over the world. These include giant sequoias, Canadian hemlocks, cypresses, and Californian cedars.NameThe name Rimske Toplice literally means 'Roman hot springs'. The settlement was attested in written sources in 1265 as Toplitz (and as Töplitz in 1482 and Toplica in 1486). The name comes from the Slovene common noun toplica 'hot spring'. Until the mid-19th century, the settlement was simply known as Toplice (literally, 'hot springs') or sometimes Toplice pri Laškem (literally, 'hot springs near Laško'). The epithet 'Roman' was first applied to the place in 1826 by Mathias Macher (1793–1876) to distinguish it from other hot springs. Baths using the hot springs were already located at the site in Roman times, as testified by the discovery of statuary and coins during excavations.ChurchThe local parish church is dedicated to Saint Margaret and belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Celje. It is a 13th-century building that has been rebuilt over the centuries. A second church on a small hill west of the main settlement is dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes and belongs to the same parish. It was built between 1885 and 1886.
