Even Ancient Romans used medicinal wells and the spa life bloomed during the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Health tourism within the more general notion of tourism began to develop in the first half of the 19th century and it was based on natural resources, thermal waters foremost, based on longer cures and health treatments. Spas slowly became populated and offered recovery from various ailments with the development of medicine, which made them favorite for citizens of places such as Lipik.
