From past to presentSv. Kateřina, established 1783
Resort St. Kateřina is situated on the site of the original Spa of St. Catherine, built at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries at the healing spring dedicated to St. Kateřina. Father of the Čapek brothers and uncle of Franz Kafka worked here as doctors. The writer Julius Zeyer was looking for inspiration in here. The spa with its historical tradition was, at the time, a very sought-after center of Viennese high society that successfully treated here nerve diseases and diseases of kidney, heart, gall bladder, and relieved rheumatic pain and other ailments in the baths.
(Karl Bachmann, SPA owner, promotional leaflet from year 1872)

As traditional Ayurvedic medicine devotees we dreamed of a place that would become the cradle of Ayurveda in the Czech Republic. Therefore we decided to build an Ayurvedic pavilion that could make our dream about therapies and procedures at the highest level possible. We wish to breathe clean air, eat healthy food and live in a beautiful, natural environment, in harmony and peace. We believe the Ayurvedic Pavilion will fully represents this philosophy and we are looking forward to its opening in March 2019.
The exact date it was founded is unknown, but if we use the church’s dedication as a reference, it can be dated back to the second half of the 14th century when the cult of St. Kateřina was the most popular during the reign of Charles IV. in Bohemia. The current Baroque form is ascribed to builder Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofer.

Golf driving rangeConcentrate on your game in peace
Golf is a natural activity in beautifully constructed natural surroundings. Thus, the game of golf is introduced as an optimal counterweight to the current lifestyle.
At St. Kateřina we do not have a golf course, but we have a beautiful training meadow. The driving Range at St. Kateřina is not only beautiful, but it is also the highest altitude training meadow in the Czech Republic. The training meadow lies at an altitude of 747 meters above sea level. The driving range is exceptional that the golf enthusiast is, with few exceptions almost alone there. One can indulge in practicing golf strokes on the vast field lined with trees without being disturbed by the critical and doubtful glances of experienced golfers. Outside the teeing ground you can enjoy the game also in Telč or at Golfresort Monachus in Nová Bystřice.
