Dizzying heights at Rudnica

Where is it?


Rudnica (rudnik = mine) is named after many of the mines that were once winding beneath it. It consists of a cluster of hills with the highest peak, Plešivec, which is 686 meters high. The path to or from it will lead you across the other peaks of Olimska gora, Mala Rudnica and Silavec. And just on the latter, a meter below the peak, stands the iconic Tower of Health and Joy on Rudnica. Climbing to the top will still be lower than the highest peak, but high enough to enjoy the beautiful view. 



How to get there?

On foot, by bike or by car. You can even take a bus. You will do the most for yourself if you choose one of the footpaths. You can choose between longer, shorter or even circular paths. The tower is erected in a prime location at the junction of footpaths leading all the way to the surrounding peaks and ending (or beginning) at Podčetrtek - close to the chocolate boutique. Just as well to have some sweets after an active day.





The tower in numbers:

  • You will count 185 steps to the top.  
  • It stands at an altitude of 622 meters, 1 meter under the peak of Silavec.
  • Standing on the top of the tower, you are 36 meters above ground.
  • The tower is so mighty it could accept up to 300 guests at a time, but it is limited for security purposes to 60 heads eager of the view.  
  • The tower is 100 % funded from the tourist tax of our guests.
  • Visiting the tower costs 0 Euro.  


A guided hike to the tower every week is also part of our animation programme and is free of charge for the guests of Terme Olimia.  


We invite you to look at our current offer of accommodation packages at Terme Olimia.

Let it be magical, this New Year

You know the saying that goes something like this: "Whatever you do on the first day of the new year, you will do the whole year." One could argue that nobody would turn down the year-round feelings sparked in your body by thermal springs. That means – no stress, lots of love and warmth, pampering in the saunas, swimming in thermal springs, enjoying great food and even better wine. And the magic hands of masseurs and Masters of the Wind. Music, and like cream on the cake, this magical winter disguise donned by the lands of Obsotelje and Kozjansko. Do you already know where you'll be for the New Year's Eve?

She, he, and romantic thermal magic

One of these days, when there is a dark silence outside, and raindrops are battering against the window. Winter is coming. She is on the right of the couch, he in the corner. She wants to watch the cooking show, he prefers football. She would like to do something. He wants to stay warm at home. She's thinking. He has no idea. She remembers that thermal water also warms. While at work, he heard that Wellness Orhidelia had become famous among lovers. They head to Terme Olimia ...

Escape to Jelenov greben

But when the master calls them by their names: "Pikaaaa, Pikiiii ...," you will notice that there is no Rudolf among them. So, you are not at Santa Clause's. You are at the homestead jelenov greben. And it will come as no surprise that you will fall in love with the place, the family hospitality and the authenticity and versatility of the offer during your visit.
