An old friend returns.

The home has long ceased to be just a place of residence. The home, its decoration and the atmosphere, reflect the spirit and identity of the owner. Turning your home into an oasis of pleasure and beauty that you will always be happy to return to is done easily with details and beautiful little things bought for the home. Small things are the key, including those “little things” which give a home new aesthetics. And, of course, home decoration can never be finished, since it changes according to the personal wishes and feelings of the person living in it.

Rogaška Glass Factory represents a perfect combination of tradition, art and passion which has existed for more than 350 years. The glass-making came to Rogaška Slatina in the 16th century, and today the development of glass production is closely linked with tourism. The tradition includes the knowledge of the old master craftsmen, while the openness to new technologies has inspired a contemporary design popular among all generations. In the search for new shapes, the company is moving boundaries and discovering new materials, and its factory nowadays produces, engraves, sands, paints and decorates crystal products. About 30 tons of crystal products are produced every day, with more than eight million tons produced annually.

As much as 95 percent of the production is exported. Rogaška was the first company from the former Yugoslavia area which had its own showroom in New York on Madison Avenue. In addition to good export results and products, its workshops are creating recognizable award statuettes for most festivals in the region – Porin, Dora, Večernjakova Ruža, Tour de Croatia, Snow Queen, ATP tournaments and other prestigious events. Rogaška is also a long-time partner of artist Gordana Drinković to whom the crystal has always been an inexhaustible source of inspiration.


Rogaška produces crystal vases, candlesticks, bowls, picture frames, the wine programme which includes the finest wine glasses that will give wine fans a new dimension of wine enjoyment, as well as the bar programme for those enjoying the more relaxed moments. With its contemporary approach to designing products, it sets new standards for the production of crystal.

Numerous guests had the chance to see for themselves how the factory has used clear and clean lines on its products to put quality front and centre. Household items are modern, but at the same time classical and traditional.
