Short history

The idea of founding a spa in Cvikov dates back to 1908, when it was decided to build a tuberculosis sanatorium in here. An estate near the Calvary was chosen for this purpose and the building of the sanatorium had been finished by the end of 1910. A restaurant was turned into spa’s headquarters and office building. The Emperor’s advisor and a renowned doctor called Horner became the first head of the sanatorium.

Places of interest

The spa cooperates with local schools and their children in order to provide classes for the patients.

The whole complex is surrounded by a vast forest park, where children can play. Different competitions are organized for them here, as well. Children spend a lot of time outside, as different outdoor activities are the essential part of the treatment. In summer they are encouraged to run and exercise, in winter, they can ski. In case of bad weather, children can stay in a modern indoor sport center with slides and climbing frames.
