Even though it might seem that the term has only been used in the recent years, it was already used in 1950. There has, however, been a development of wellness tourism in the recent times, including fitness and sport, beauty treatments, healthy diets, relaxation after daily stress, meditation, yoga, and education about a healthy lifestyle. And you can find all this in Kamnik its immediate surroundings.
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.
