Karlovy Vary - Carlsbad

Karlovy Vary – Carlsbad

Karlovy Vary lies in West Bohemia at the confluence of the Tepla River and the Ohre River, about 120 km west of Prague. It is the largest and best known spa city in the Czech Republic.

The city was founded in the 14th century by Charles IV. According to a legend, the Emperor had the city built soon after the accidental discovery of thermal springs by his hunting entourage. The spa facilities enjoyed the favor of many aristocratic houses and rich burghers as early as the 16th century. Owing to a series of natural disasters from that period only a few buildings have been preserved. Most architectonic monuments originated in the 18th and the 19th century when the city lived the “period of plenitude”.

The international fame of the spa city was contributed to by its balneological heritage, the international film festival and some of Karlovy Vary’s typical products. Many people automatically associate the words Becherovka, Moser or Thun porcelain with Karlovy Vary. Of no less popularity and renown are traditional spa wafers.
