Most romantic places
Karlovy Vary is the jewel of the West Bohemian Spa Triangle. The perfect place to chill out with your significant other and enjoy a massage or a dip in the whirlpool. If you’d rather spend Valentine’s Day surrounded by gorgeous architecture, then Sadova Colonnade is the place for you.
In Carlsbad, almost everything revolves around water. In various places, the water gushes out from the ground at different temperatures. The biggest and most famous spring is the carbonated mineral water spring at the white colonnades. In total there are 16 springs in seven colonnades. For a drinking cure at home, there is the Carlsbad spring salt.
Carlsbad is home to some specialities that are known far beyond the country's borders. One example is the Carlsbad wafer. This sweet pastry, available in different flavours, is a popular souvenir. The herbal liqueur Becherovka was invented in Carlsbad and, as a joke, it is popularly known as the healthiest mineral spring of the spa resort.
The hot underground waters that rise to the surface in Karlovy Vary bring with them a huge amount of mineral substances. As water evaporates, sinter or hot-spring tufa is formed. During an excursion of the colonnade underground, you will be able to see with your own eyes the actual tuff-coating of various items (Carlsbad roses belong among well-known souvenirs).
The Moser glass works will enchant you with hand-cut and hand-blown glassware from unleaded crystal. Visit the glass works, the glass museum and theart gallery. The butterfly house in Carlsbad is home to over 30 different species of butterflies from around the world. The often very colourful and delicate insects fly around among the visitors.
