Highlights / General details
This trip combines our tour to Karlovy Vary with a visit of another Czech spa Marianske Lazne. During this tour you’ll have the opportunity to visit the largest, most well-known Czech Spa (German name is Carlsbad). The founding of this town has been linked to Emperor Charles IV since 1358, when he built a hunting lodge here. There are 12 famous springs with a temperature of about 72°C, the most famous being Vrídlo.
During your walk along the Teplá River (its name means "warm") and the majestic Neo-Renaissance colonnades, you will have a chance to taste different mineral waters and purchase souvenirs. Karlovy Vary is also famous for its local china and glass manufacturing industry. These products are on display at a special exhibition and are sold at specialized shops. The spa was visited by many rulers and artists including Goethe, Chateaubriand, Chopin, Beethoven, Brahms and Dvorak.
After lunch (included), visit the Becherovka Museum. You’ll also visit the Moser glass shop and Thun porcelan shop. Next you will come to the famous Mariánské Lázne, with its curative springs.
