Main competition program

Relaxing herbal ceremonies

A special category of sauna ceremonies aimed at calming and recharging forces. Amazing atmosphere with pleasant music, subdued light and subtle scents. Even here, natural ingredients have the main say, we are at the Sauna Herbal Cup! Contestants present their original concept of working with herbs or spices, extracts of aromatic plants, brooms. Everyone is preparing a special mix of essential oils. Competition ceremonies are something you will never forget! We will smell you both inside and out. This type of ceremony does not bring a story built like in a sauna theater. But even here you can find yourself in distant countries, exotic cities, wildlife … The jury evaluates the work of the sauna, the quality of the ceremony, professionalism, hygiene, work with heat and special aromatherapy and the use of nature. Enter the sauna and let yourself be carried away to the kingdom of peace. Experience another dimension of adventure sauna!


The main attraction of the Sauna Herbal Cup, for eyes, nose and body. Royal procedures in the unique concept of our competitors. Scrubs and scraps, body care, face masks, aromatherapy in the steam bath. Saunas perform caring and beautifying treatments using quality products, interesting combinations of herbs and other natural ingredients. It is necessary to be able to mix peeling well, use imagination and use knowledge. But also very important is the presentation – design and explanation of the procedure and purpose of the procedure. Everything is evaluated. Peelings are displayed as real works of art, beautiful to the eye. A highly attractive part of the competition! You’ll love it. Are you looking forward to the steam bath now?

Sauna Herbal Cup was born in 2013. Pavel Hofrichter, Radovan Štícha and Tomáš Drápal invented the competition and organized a unique meeting of saunaers from several countries. For the first time in the Relax Center Kolštejn. The main idea of the project is to use exclusively natural products from the beginning. For sauna and accompanying procedures.
