The Spa Park on the outskirts of the village is still literally a showcase of First Republic architecture. In addition to the beautiful mansion, it can further boast the main Spa building, known as Masaryk House named after the first Czech president Masaryk who stay here for treatment.  
Spa is the masterpiece of one of the most important architects of the First Republic, Milan Babuška (who, for example, designed the functionalist buildings of the National Technical Museum and the National Agricultural Museum in Letná, Prague). The architecture adds a pleasant nostalgic atmosphere to the Spa, although the spa care is on a high level. Tradition, history and the experiences related to it are important here. This is maybe also the reason why the Spa‘s guests feel so good here.

Natural healing sources

The exceptionally high quality peat originating from local sources has been used for spa care for over one hundred years. It is a unique chalk peat soil, with a high content of calcium carbonate and iron. This unique, European natural healing source has large deposits. Experts estimate that the local peat deposits will last for at least another two hundred years. Thanks to the natural density, the peat is primarily suitable for wraps and baths.

Medical Conditions Treated in the Spa

The local peat has beneficial effects, especially for treating diseases of the muscular-skeletal and nervous systems.
