The beautiful Sadová colonnade, built in 1880, once belonged to a larger pavillon which has been demolished. Luckily this pretty architecture has stayed and been renovated. It is probably the most elaborate structure among the galleries in the spa quarter. The ornaments of the railings, arches and the domes of the two small pavillons look like lace. They are made from cast iron, just like the slender columns.

Three springs rise under the colonnade or in its close vicinity - reason to stay and promenade for a while with a cup of water.

Next to the colonnade there is the largest park of the spa quarter with flower beds, lawns and old trees. The park is named after the popular Czech composer Antonin Dvorák. His statue can be found in the middle of the park. (Apologies to Mr Dvorák for the missing brevis on the r which VT won't let me type.)
