Basic Facts Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad, Karlsbad) - the world famous spa - was founded by Charles IV (14th century). The end of the 19th century determined the final architectural outlook of Karlovy Vary surrounded by romantic hilly countryside. Today it is the largest spa town in the Czech Republic.

The fame of Karlovy Vary has spread into the whole world thanks to its mineral springs. There are 12 healing springs rising in the spa. Their basic compositions are similar but they differ in temperature and the amount of carbon dioxide, and that is why their effects are different as well. The strongest is the spring Vridlo, rising from the depth of 3000 metres. The temperature reaches 73° C. The temperature of the other springs is around 40° C. The springs cure mainly metabolic disorders; they are also used for inhalations and baths.
