The Dravska banovina Encyclopedia dated 1939 has an entry reading, that »on the teritory of Terme Čatež the healing thermal springs were discovered in 1797.«
Another book The Archeological Excavations in Slovenia mentions
the area around Čatež as »revealing the construction traces from the Roman
period, such as Neviodunum, the town situated appr. 12 km and the Villae
Rusticae and many tombstones situated
only 5 km away from Čatež.
