The curative effects of local water have been known for a very long time. Small travertine swimming pools carved out a long time ago can still be seen in the area. They are known as the “Roman spa”.

Short history

The earliest written evidence of the spa in Dudince dates back to 1284. In an old document from 1301, two separate settlements are mentioned: Horné and Dolné Dudince. In the past, mineral springs belonged to noblemen. In the 19th century, Dudince was a part of the property of the Prince of Coburg, who, however, was not quite interested in expanding the spa. At the time, the village consisted of 19 cottages inhabited by 112 people.
