Discover a Confluence of Different Worlds
Čatež and Brežice lie on a tectonic fault with many hot springs. You can experience the healing power of natural thermal water in the biggest spa complex in the country – Terme Čatež; or in the youngest spa center in Dobova – Terme Paradiso.
Discover natural bathing sites along the Krka River, try out stand up paddle boarding, kayaking or canoeing, visit the local hills on cycling or hiking trails, or go hiking on the Brežice Hiking Trail.
While you are visiting the local hills, you can enjoy the local cuisine! Try the local specialties and excellent wines in the many guesthouses and wineries along the Podgorjanska or the Bizeljsko-Sremiška Wine Route, where guided tours through the repnicas (turnip cellars) provide unique experiences. You also have to visit the cradle of the local wine Cviček–Gadova peč, where locals will welcome you in special vineyard cottages.
Numerous churches, castles, historical houses, museums, and other local features of Brežice will overwhelm you with the spirit of history.
While visiting, we also recommend you to hire local guides both for individual guests and groups, because the guides will reveal you things that otherwise you will overlook.
