Famous spa with curative hot springs
The incarnation of spa elegance, imposing colonnades, exclusive spa buildings and a wonderful layout in the heart of a forested valley. That is Karlovy Vary. The best known town in the world renowned West Bohemian Spa Triangle, in which some of the most famous figures in European artistic and cultural life have enjoyed treatment, is today the second most visited spot in the Czech Republic. Thanks to its unique architecture, it is one of Europe's most beautiful spas. Legend has it that Karlovy Vary was founded by the Czech king and holy Roman emperor Charles IV in the 14th century. It is said that the ruler discovered a unique spring here while out hunting deer. Over the centuries a spa town has developed here whose fame has surpassed the borders of Bohemia, with Karlovy Vary becoming synonymous with charm and social standing. It has welcomed such figures as Goethe, Beethoven, Gogol, Paganini, Casanova, and Mozart, along with dozens of heads of state, while in recent times it has hosted many movie stars.

Pavel is absolutely delightful, hugely knowledgeable, with a fun sense of humour and great company! If we were staying any longer we would definitely book another tour with him!! Definitely worth booking a tour with Pavel! Especially if you get the chance to get out of town in his luxury vehicle- the countryside is gorgeous and the little towns are so lovely to wonder about!
