The spa, the largest and best known in the Czech Republic, was founded around 1350.Twenty years later, the community was granted the status of a town by Emperor Charles IV. Karlovy Vary is a place of healing springs. There are about 100 hot springs o f varying strength found in the town, twelve of which have been used for therapeutic purposes since the early 19th century. The temperature of the springs ranges from 42 °C to 72 °C. The symbol and pulsing heart of the spa is the “Vřídlo” spring, which spouts water to a height of 15 metres. An important part of the spa treatment at Karlovy Vary is the drinking cure. The springs have various temperatures and content of carbon dioxide gas. Therefore, you must follow the prescribed springs, quantity and drinking times. The drinking cure is mostly suitable before meals, when walking, in small sips. Besides a positive impact on digestion, on overall health and on the immune system, it helps detoxify the body. The spa treatment is based on an individual treatment plan determined by the physician during the introductory exam. For maximum effect, the spa treatment should last 14 days or more, but even shorter wellness stays are an essential part of our lives nowadays. They have preventive effects, relieve your body of stress and jump-start your personal development. Spa treatments should be repeated twice a year, with a break of six months.
