In Mariánské Lázně
, which even Goethe, Chopin
and King Edward VII would visit to undergo treatment by drinking mineral water, you’ll find the Gourmet Hotel & Restaurant Villa Patriot
in a 19th century villa. An interestingly situated restaurant is located in the town centre in the close vicinity of a forest and spa park. The world-known colonnade and its promenades is just a 5-minute walk from the restaurant through a pleasant park. The renowned kitchen of this restaurant offers a modern twist on traditional Czech meals
using local ingredients. In the season, the menu will surely offer venison or fish
prepared in some interesting fashion, and Czech specialties in a trendy inventive form will definitely be waiting for you.
Those staying in the famous spa city of Karlovy Vary
, which globally ranks in first place with its thirteen hot mineral springs, shouldn’t miss a visit to the Grand Hotel Pupp
. Its history dates all the way back to 1701, and it hosted many famous film stars during their visits to the international film festival
. The certified restaurants it houses are based on three mainstays: fresh and genuine ingredients
, proven local suppliers and traditional recipes of Czech cuisine, executed in the best way. When visiting Karlovy Vary, don’t forget to try the “fourteenth healing spring”, the well-known Becherovka
herbal liqueur (bitters).
Culinary experiences are also offered in south Bohemia
and the spa town of Třeboň
, which is known for its healing mud baths. Hotel Zlatá Hvězda
in the town’s centre houses a certified restaurant bearing the telling name Zdejší kuchyně (“Local Cuisine”)
. In the Zdejší kuchyně restaurant menu you’ll find dishes made from local ingredients and, since Třeboň is famous for fish farming, fish specialties
are also included. You can try delicious fish soup, carp, pikeperche or amur
made in various ways. Even those who don’t really fancy fish can make a good choice there as the menu offers excellent southern-Bohemian specialties.
There are also renowned spas located in Moravia

and spa town of Jeseník
, which surely have a lot to surprise you with. The picturesque mountain Guesthouse Kovárna
is well-known, among other things, for excellent soups, roast goose and fluffy fruit dumplings. The Kolštejn Restaurant in Horní Branná
offers local regional specialties and its own excellent beer, brewed directly on site.
, the largest Moravian spa town, gourmets will surely be impressed by traditional Moravian and Bohemian specialties that are served in one of a few French restaurants in Czechia, in the Wellness & SPA Hotel Alexandria
. We recommend a homemade pâté or the great Czech specialty of roast beef sirloin in cream sauce with bread dumplings. And don’t forget about Luhačovice traditional local Luhačovická bylinná
digestif, which you’ll certainly like after a hearty lunch.
