Čatež Thermal Spa
The Čatež Thermal Spa is located on the right bank of the Sava River, at the beginning of the northern slopes of wine-growing and wooded Gorjanci in the southeast of Slovenia. It is located close to the Ljubljana-Zagreb motorway, 100 km from the capital, 40 km from Novo mesto, the capital of the Dolenjska region, and 10 km from the border with Slovenia’s southern neighbour Croatia. The spa bears the name of a mythical creature from folk tradition. Half-man, half-goat, Čatež would appear to people in the area of the springs. Today, Čatež sits in the atrium of the Thermal Riviera telling stories about the hot springs, which even in the early 19th century were reputed to be the warmest for miles around.
