WEST BOHEMIAN SPA TOUR

Czech balneology has very long tradition. The oldest and probably also the most famous spa town is Karlovy Vary. The founder of this town was Czech king and Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV. who already in 1370 recognized the healing effects of local mineral water. Karlovy Vary became later very popular social and culture centre where all European nobility was coming not only for therapies but also (or mainly) for amusement. The spa centre was adorned with parks, gardens and colonnades where guests could walk and relax. Karlovy Vary is also a home of two famous manufactures - Jan Becher and Ludwig Moser. The first one started here the production of popular Czech liquer Becherovka, the second one founded Moser glassworks manufacturing until today luxury glass.

Mariánské Lázně has not that long history as Karlovy Vary. It was founded in the 19.century. The spa centre has plenty of colourful and ornate houses built at the beginning of the 20th century, a period when even an ordinary appartment house looked more as a palace. Mariánské Lázně is also one of the greenest Cities in our country. You can walk for hours in local parks and surrounding forests and enjoy natural beauties of this scenic countryside.
