Czech Spas

The Czech Republic has long been famous for its spas. Most of its spa resorts developed during the 18th to 20th centuries and they can boast of having hosted many famous personalities, such as the Russian Czar Peter the Great, the German poet and dramatist J. W. Goethe, composers L. van Beethoven and Mozart and the Italian violin virtuoso N. Paganini, King Edward VII, the American bulb inventor, T. A. Edison, and writer Mark Twain.

Perhaps the most renowned is the so-called "West Bohemia spa triangle" formed by Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Marianske Lazne (Marienbad) and Frantiskovy Lazne (Franzenbad); however, there many other locations to choose from.

Many spas specialise in treatments, for example of musculoskeletal, circulatory and digestive systems, diseases of the respiratory and nervous systems, diabetes treatment, skin diseases, gynecological and endocrinological problems, diseases of the urinary tract, the overweight and obese, and also in treatment of oncological diseases. However, simple relaxing spa stays are also rather popular.
