Drinking  spring water is becoming increasingly popular as more and more eco-conscious travelers are searching for undisovered natural water springs, where water is not only the cleanest but also contains the outstanding energetic and healing properties. Fascinating scientific findings of Dr. Masaru Emoto with frozen water crystals reveal the enormous power and greatest mysteries of the water. It is not only an essence of life but also holds a memory and is influenced by our consciousness.

Spring water will provide you with positive energy, strengthen your immune system, heal you, regenerate you and boost your joy of life.  If you want to collect it when its energies are the strongest, you should visit the water springs at full moon just before the sunrise. 

Here are the 6 natural water springs in Croatia that still remained hidden sights. They don’t attract hordes of people thanks to the fact that they are not (yet) located on the main tourist routes:
