It is less known that Kamnik used to have a very well-renowned swimming pool complex by the name of Kurhaus in the period between the 19th and the 20th century. The public swimming pool complex stood at the confluence of Nevljica and Kamniška Bistrica rivers, and was established by Alojz Prašnikar (1821–1899). It attracted numerous visitors, not only from Ljubljana, but also from Trieste, Vienna, and Prague. At the end of the century, it was able to complete even with Bled, and on 16 June 1883 it was even visited by the Emperor Franz Joseph who praised the resort very highly. The swimming pool resort was commended also by Sebastian Kneipp himself, the inventor of the Kneipp therapy. Once the visit of his Wörishofen Spa started growing rapidly, he recommended treatment in Kamnik as well.
