Vyhne village is located at the beginning of the Štiavnické vrchy protected landscape area, only 15 km away from the historic royal mining town Banská Štiavnica. The reason for the establishment of the village was the mines, especially the locality of rich iron ore. According to some assumptions, Germanic tribes already mined iron ore here sometime in the 3rd-2nd century BC. The occurrence of ore with a rich iron content almost on the surface and deep surrounding forests made it possible to process iron ore by direct reduction in forges. The smelter gradually vanished in the nineties of the 18th century, because the amalgamation method did not meet the economic ideas of the officials at the time. Despite the importance of mining, ironworks and brewing, Vyhne is most famous for chalybeate thermal water and medical spa. The establishment of the spa in Vyhne is connected with the mining of iron ore. According to oral tradition, when the miners began to dig an adit on the south-facing hillside, they had barely dug a hundred footsteps when they came to a spring of water that was not warm, but practically hot. The time of spa´s establishment of cannot be precisely determined.
