Relax like an aristocrat or a world-famous movie star
Spas have always been a popular destination for the European elite. Famous aristocrats, philosophers, and well-known artists have enjoyed luxurious comfort, a vibrant social life, and countless romances at them. Goethe met his beloved Ulrika for the first time in Karlovy Vary, the famous Beethoven, and Russian Tsar Alexander and Austrian Empress Sisi regularly visited to reenergize – and the tradition continues! Today, celebrities heading to the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival adds to the annual excitement. In recent years, for example, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson, and Uma Thurman have all visited here. We leave it to you to write your own story here.
A triangle within UNESCO
Hundreds of thousands of guests visit West Bohemia for the spa towns of Karlovy Vary, Mariánské Lázně and Františkovy Lázně every year. Amidst beautiful parks and noble colonnades, they indulge in top services renowned for centuries based on the latest technology. The importance of what is known as the spa triangle and its long-standing traditions is confirmed by its inclusion in the select company of European spas inscribed on the UNESCO World Cultural and the Natural Heritage List.
Czech spa record-makers
The oldest Czech spa is Teplice, founded in the 12th century. The Jáchymov Spa boasts the title of the oldest radon spa in the world. The Czech spa at the highest elevation can be found in the picturesque Karlova Studánka at the foot of Praděd in the Jeseníky Mountains, and the most famous hot in Karlovy Vary boasts the largest concentration of healing hot springs in the world.
