The jewel of West Bohemia, spa paradise and the best Czech crystal factory, all of it you can find in Karlovy Vary.
Karlovy Vary, founded by Charles IV in the 14th century, is the oldest Czech spa city. The healing effect of its 13 mineral springs is so great that some of the most famous figures in European artistic and cultural life have enjoyed treatment, such as Peter the Great, Casanova, Goethe, Beethoven, Gogol or Mozart.
The beauty of the city lies in its colonnades, springs and also great hotels that takes you back to gorgeous past. You must enjoy the coffee in Grand Hotel Pupp, the very same place where the scenes for movies James Bond Casino Royale or Last Holiday were shot.
