Czech Spas

The healing energy that springs from the heart of Europe

The healing power of natural springs in today's Czech Republic was already known to the ancient Romans and Celts. The local spas have been a place of rest for celebrities and prominent persons since time immemorial, boasting more than 300 years of tradition. Goethe, Beethoven, famous movie stars and influential aristocrats walked down their colonnades. Luxury, comfort and top service, which were enjoyed by the rich and famous, are waiting for you in a modern form. Got yourself packed yet?

Relax like an aristocrat or world-famous movie star

Spas have always been a popular destination for Europe‘s cream of the crop. Famous aristocrats, philosophers and well-known artists enjoyed the comfort, rich social life and countless romances here. Goethe met his beloved Ulrika for the first time here, the famous Beethoven composed the 9th Symphony here, and the Russian Tsar Alexander or the Austrian Empress Sisi came here regularly to draw new energy. And the tradition continues! Today, celebrities heading to the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival secure the annual excitement. In recent years, for example, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson or Uma Thurman have all visited here. We'll leave it up to you to write your own story here.
