Tradicionalno kupatilo


Hamam, poznat i kao turski hamam ili tursko kupatilo, je bliskoistočna varijanta parne kupke koja se može kategorizovati kao parni "rođak" saune. Iako su prvi hamami poticali iz Arabije i kultura kupatila bila centralni deo rimskog života, Turska je popularizovala tradiciju i najčešće je povezana s njim.

Captured By The Romans

The thermal mineral springs of Novopazar Banja were first captured by the Romans. In the Middle Ages, the spa belonged to the Djurdjevi Stupovi monastery and was part of the parish of Brvenik.

New Name Ilidza

During the time of the Turks, it was given the name Ilidza, but it was abandoned for some time. From 1611, there had been a record by the French travel writer Lefebvre, only about natural hot water springs, but not about spa facilities.

XVII century spa renovation

In the XVII century, the Turks started to pay more attention to it. On the remains of a Roman bath, the Turks built two baths and a little further on a caravanserai for the accommodation of visitors.

Built by Hafiz Ahmed Pasha


The inscription shows that the hamam in Novopazarska Banja was built in Hijri year 1002, i.e. 1593/1594.

Thermal spa


Rajčinovica spa is a thermal spa within the hydrogeothermal system of Novopazarska Banja. The spa consists of three hot springs. The water from the well in the pool has a temperature of 30 °C, from the first well 42 °C, and from the second at a depth of 40 m 38 °C. The combined use of these waters and natural cooling can achieve a suitable thermal state without artificial cooling, which increases the therapeutic value of these waters. The capacity of these wells during the winter season is higher, but the water mineralization is lower and decreases with increasing capacity. During the summer, the capacity is very low, and the mineralization is higher.
Rajčinovica spa is recommended for the treatment of diseases of the digestive organs, liver and biliary tract, kidneys and urinary tract, intestinal disorders, if they are secondary to certain liver and intestinal disorders, as well as metabolic disorders and sugar choristuric and axolomic diathesis.
