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

The Stone Circle of the DruidsDiscover power of a spiritual place
The Stone Circle is a modern replica of a megalithic structure. It was built in 2014 as the largest cromlech in the Czech Republic. Its purpose is to help people in their spiritual development and to improve their health.
Being traditional Ayurvedic medicine devotees we dreamed of a place that would become the cradle of Ayurveda in the Czech Republic. Therefore, we have decided to build an Ayurvedic pavilion that could realize our dream about therapies and procedures at the highest level possible. We want to breathe clean air, eat healthy food and live in harmony and peace in beautiful and natural environment. We believe the Ayurvedic Pavilion fully represents this philosophy.
The exact date of its foundation 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 during the reign of Charles IV. when the cult of Svata Katerina was the most popular 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 rearanged natural surroundings. Thus, the game of golf is an optimal counterweight to the current lifestyle.
At Svata Katerina we do not have a golf course, but we have a beautiful training meadow. The Driving Range at Svata Katerina is not only beautiful, but it is also the highest training meadow in the Czech Republic. The training meadow lies at an altitude of 747 meters above sea level. The Driving Range is also exceptional that the golf enthusiast may play golf alone, with few exceptions.
You can also play golf at the nearby Monachus golf course in Nová Bystřice or in Telč.
