Ana's mansion - museum of Rogaška Slatina
In the newly constructed facility with a floor area of 1,250m² one can experience the history of Rogaška Slatina by passing through different thematic areas and learn about its main attractions today.
The “Glassworks collection” leads us through the stages of production of crystal glass combined with light and sound effects. The “Graphics collection” offers an ingenious solution for archiving, especially for exhibiting the graphic collection of the Swiss Kurt Mueller, a long-time visitor of the health resort, who donated his collection to the Rogaška health centre. As a result of many years’ work by the local Aleksander Jurkovič, a special section presents the “local studies collection”, “collection of signatures” and the “royal collection” associated with the Karađorđevič family. The path to the floor leads to the “park collection”, where tree species, characteristic for Rogaška Slatina, are presented. The last section is dedicated to a key element of the historical development of Rogaška Slatina – water, which is presented in the cellar in different sceneries where the visitors can test the impact of water on their own senses.

Spring Tempel, named also „main spring“ was known already in year 1680. The first bottling of water was built next to spring Tempel. Asthe main springit served Rogaška Slatina for more than 200 years, until 1884. After that only 35 meters away a new spring named Styria was discovered. Both dried up in 1952.

In history there were many springs: Ferdinand, Gothard, Ivan, forest, Joseph, Moritz spring and park spring.

In 1804the owners of the emerging health resort in Slatina built a new chapel and dedicated it to St. Anna. The cult of Mary's mother, the most popular of all saints, protector of women and girls, it entirely reflected new nature of emerging resort and it was more appropriate than the cult of the Czech saint St. John of Nepomuk, which was placed in health resort at the beginning of the 18th century by Viennese pharmacists and it symbolized positive effects (including financial) of healing water.
