Welcome to Naftalan

Welcome to Naftalan, a special hospital for medical rehabilitation, situated in Ivanić-Grad.

We wish for your stay at the Hospital to be beneficial for your health and pleasant for your spirit and mood.

Since 1989, at Special Hospital Naftalan we successfully perform treatments with the help of thermal saltwater and healing naftalan oil – which makes the Hospital unique globally. Apart from Croatia, only Azerbaijan has a naftalan well.

This mineral oil is included among natural health factors, and our experts developed a system of its use in baths – that is, naftalan therapy. Combined with other modern therapies, naftalan efficiently treats psoriasis and diseases of locomotor system, significantly improving patients' quality of life.

Special Hospital Naftalan took the use of naftalan a step further and founded a subsidiary, Ivalan Terme. This company deals with development, production and sale of naftalan-based products, with the aim of developing a wholesale cosmetic line for problematic skin, skin prone to scaling, and scalp.


Naftalan employs nine specialist physicians from the fields of dermatology and physical medicine who, along with the medical personnel – physiotherapists, nurses, masseurs, cosmeticians and kinesiologists – take care of your health 24 hours a day.

We regularly exchange experiences with the colleagues from the entire world and improve our skills to make our patients and guests even more satisfied.

The dedicated experts, naftalan's healing properties and numerous therapies and medical programmes are the reasons why more and more visitors from Croatia and abroad approach us with trust.

Our Hospital records numerous visits by patients and guests from the entire world, which gladly return to us – an indisputable proof of customers' satisfaction.


As successful application of naftalan makes us unique in Europe and the world, our aim is to make Special Hospital Naftalan a first-rate destination for medical tourism.

Patients' and guests' requests are our guide in finding new, more modern solutions.

I cordially greet you in the name of all the employees and we invite you to approach us with trust. We are here for you, at your disposal.
