How the Semtín farm turned into Resort Capi Hnizdo
The local authorities howerver ordered a new farm be built in the location, which was called Novy Dvur Semtin. The new farm extended to the villages Semtin and Semtinek and its farmland totalled more than 136 hectares. The farming business was in 1875 complemented with a distillery. The prosperity however did not last forever as the 20th century limited further development. Over time, the farm started to decay and at the beginning of our century it was not used at all.
In 2006, the planning works on redesign of the entire campus started. The objective was clear: create a place with luxury accomodation, a venue for business events and free-time activities while respecting the surrounding landscape. Four years later, the reconstruction was successfully finished.
The Resort's most dominant element is our modern riding hall that resembles a stork's nest. Storks that live here since 1926, return every year from Africa. When we created our resort our primary objective was to create a unique place where every guest likes to come back. A place, where the guest can spend time in absolute harmony with the nature and surrounding landscape.
The riding hall building received many awards, it was nominated for the Building of the Year 2010 and it also reached top ten at the the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona in 2011.
