Karlovy Vary, also known as Carlsbad, is the biggest and most famous spa town in the Czech Republic. More than 70 hot springs can be found here and twelve of them are used for the drinking treatment. The people from Karlovy Vary like to say that the 13th spring is the Becherovka - traditional Czech liquor made in Karlovy Vary..

The town is situated on the confluence of the Tepla and the Ohre Rivers, and surrounded by three mountain ranges. More than a third of the town area is wooded, and woods surround the town on all sides. There are extensive wooded paths to wander, and architecture characterized by the Art Nouveau and historicism styles of the end of the 19th century. It was during this time that many hotels, baths, churches, and the post office were built.
Karlovy Vary is home to the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, one of the oldest in the world.

    Healing water is Total ***! I drank that stuff and came down with kidney stones a week after. What is this supposed to heal? All I know is that it creates more health problems than it's supposed to "heal".

    A great page and wonderful pics , including the great Russian church, that I could not find on the local maps and finally gave up, as my parking-meter had expired... :-(((
