The first written mention of Sklené Teplice dates back to 1340. Sklené Teplice was founded as a felling settlement and the inhabitants harvested wood for the mines in Banská Štiavnica. The proximity of Banská Štiavnica also influenced another fact. Around 1350, a glasswork was established here. It was the first glass factory in Hungary. After downfall of glasswork, a smelter was established in Sklené Teplice, where gold and silver were separated from unused ores by using lead. Ores mined in Banská Štiavnica and the surrounding area were processed here. Ever since the establishment of village, its inhabitants have used the beneficial effects of the thermal mineral water which springs up here to this day. The smelter buildings were sold to spa and private individuals, the equipment was distributed among other smelters in region. In this way, industrial production vanished in Sklené Teplice, and village focused purely on spa and agriculture.
