Karlovy Vary The Essential
Highly recommended
Goethe and a host of other European cultural figures took the waters at Karlovy Vary, the queen of spa towns in the Czech Republic. It is open year round, and its waters, from 12 springs, are rich in minerals. In addition to the healing qualities of its waters, the town is also famed for its rich architectural heritage and its superb beech groves dotted with delightful paths. Don't leave without purchasing a small bottle of herb liquor, the town's specialty!
