Karlovy Vary, better known by its German name, Karlsbad, is the most famous Bohemian spa. It was named for the Bohemian king and German and Holy Roman emperor Charles (Karl) IV who allegedly found the springs in 1358 during a hunting expedition. In the 19th century, royalty came here from all over Europe for treatment. Among the rich and famous who visited Karlsbad are Goethe, Schiller, Beethoven, Chopin, and even Karl Marx.
The city is located about a 2 hours scenic drive west of Prague. On arrival in Karlovy Vary we take you on a walk along the Park Colonnade and the river Tepla. There are over 60 mineral springs ranging from 10oC to 73.6oC (50oF - 165oF). 13 of these springs are located along our route and you can sample them all, if you like. Depending on your level of walking ability, we take a hike up the mountain to spectacular views of the city, visit the beautiful Russian Orthodox Church of Peter and Paul, the baroque church of St. Maria Magdalene and more. Have lunch in one of the many restaurants right on the Tepla River.
