The spas Karlovy Vary are the biggest, the most popular and famous in the Czech Republic. The local thermal and mineral springs have been visited by more than 6 million people from all around the world. There are more than 60 thermal springs in Karlovy Vary from which 13 are used for medical purposes. The most frequent visitors are people with digestion and metabolism problems as well as those seeking rehabilitation. There are many spa colonnades where you can drink fresh water, stroll around or admire the beautiful architecture of the city. The most famous one is the Mlýnská kolonáda (the Mill Colonnade). Karlovy Vary is surrouned by the Krušné Mountains, Doupovské Mountains and Slavkov Forest. In the city there are literally dozens of cultural events taking place every day.  There are many theatres, galleries, museums, though the cultural event number one every yearis the International film festival. When you go to Karlovy Vary, do not forget to try three things: Mattoni mineral water, Becherovka (traditional herbal liquer) and the delicious Karlovy Vary wafers!

The spas were founded in the 14th century by Charles IV nearby his favourite castle – Loket. The town’s development was rather turbulent. The Gothic and Rennaissance appearance were destroyed by fires. What we can see nowadays is basically architecture of the 19th and 20th centuries (classicism, Art Noveau, modern constructivism and functionalism).
