KARLOVY VARY

approx. 9-10 hours

 

The wonderful spa town of Karlovy Vary is situated in Western Bohemia in a romantic valley of the Tepla River.

 

It is famous worldwide for its spa facilities and 12 hot mineral springs. According to a legend its mineral streams were discovered by accident, during a hunting trip by Charles IV in 14th century. Charles IV really loved this town and it is only correct that it bears his name - Karlovy Vary /Charles' hot waters/.

 

Karlovy Vary was rebuilt many times over the course of centuries. We can still admire houses designed in 19th and early 20th centuries. Fellner and Hellmer - two Viennese architects designed the finest architecture pieces.

 

Karlovy Vary has played host to an endless list of celebrities including Goethe, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, List, Tchaikovsky etc. Everybody who was “somebody” had to visit Karlovy Vary / known as Karlsbaad in German. ¨

 

After a period of decline during communist times, the town has been restored back to its beauty and it is once again welcoming the visitors from all over the world.
