Optional excursion: The Tradition of Glass Production (Thursday, 15th of March, 17:00)
Rogaška Slatina offers relaxation, entertainment and health in a glass for centuries. Her rich legacy of the ancestors has stayed very well preserved through time. Not only at home, even beyond the borders is Rogaška Slatina known for an amazing quality of cut and engraved products made by hand by glass masters out of leaden crystal. In the glass factory Rogaška, the knowledge comes from almost 350 years of tradition from the areas of Trebuša, Pohorje and Kozjansko, when one could see the early glassworks. After the blossoming of the glass-making in the 18th and 19th century and later on near decline of the melting furnaces Viljem Abel, the owner of Joint glass factories, built the glass factory Rogaška in the year 1926, which is today one of the biggest European producers.
In the glass factory Rogaška one can buy the products in the industrial shop. One can also join a guided group tour of the factory and the production of the unique products of glass masters, which are made by blowing the glass into different shapes.
