Spa Berta

Since the Middle Ages, the growing towns founded not only hospitals, but the greater population density confined between the town walls required also public bath. These public baths were very popular place not only for cleaning the body but also gradually became a social hub.

The earliest remark of a Trebon bath in the Rozmberk street comes from 1666. After that bath was closed Vaclav Horak, estate administrator for the Schwarzenbergs, in 1861 got permission to establish a spa using the running waters of the Golden Canal. In the years 1881–1883 an extension was built next to the bath to house the new peat baths. These peat baths are today still used for medical purposes. The Spa is now called Berta Spa, starting the history of modern day spa traditions in Trebon.

Spa Berta remained in private hands until 1939. Then it was bought by the municipality which ordered a costly reconstruction. Peat mud and carbonic baths were applied to treat ailments like rheumatism, gout, sciatica, neurosis, and women's diseases. In 1948, the spa was nationalized and later further enlarged.

Today, as at the very beginning, the spa focuses on treating diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Guests are accommodated in modern single and double rooms and suites with separate bathroom and toilet. Clients and town people can also use the spa pool with whirlpool, sauna, steam room, and fitness center. The spa complex now also includes a restaurant, terrace bar and spa café.
