Teplice Travel Guide: 19 reviews and 37 photos
Teplice is a town with a population of about 50'000. It is located at the foot of the Erzgebirge mountains / Krusne Hory in Northern Bohemia, half way between Prague and Dresden.
The region around Teplice was pretty much influenced by both Czech and German culture as you can still see at many places in the town. Many signs are in German, and many locals speak some German too. English is not very common and this might not change until Teplice gets discovered by other than Czech and German tourists.
Teplice was one of Europe's earliest spa towns. Thanks to the magical effects of the local springs and a lively social life the spa town of Teplice was once referred to as "Little Paris" and the "Salon of Europe". Many prominent figures of international culture, including Goethe, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Wagner, came to Teplice to experience the beneficial effects of the local curative springs.
However, the splendor of past glory has somewhat faded, but the town slowly recovers since the fall of the iron curtain. Many old townhouses were restored, huge investments into the spa hotels were made and the extensive gardens with blooming flowers everywhere are as beautiful as in past times.
My most recent visit was in Sept 2005. I attended some business in Teplice and stayed one night. Although time was somewhat limited I would like to share my observations with you on this page.
Teplice has a sufficient local transportation system - buses. Most buses are trolley buses, getting the electric power... more travel advice
I went to Teplice by bus from Dresden, which is the most economical way. The bus starts right at the Central Railway... more travel advice
