Customer comments:

As Hunting deer in 1348, the Emperor Charles IV discovered here hot springs and he couldn’t image the great success he had succeeded. The golden age of Carlsbad as one of the finest European spas has been in the 19th century. Carlsbad today is the first place in terms of cure in the Czech Republic, the pearl of Bohemia, unique, lively and charming architecture.

And of course all musicians will taste the 13th source of Carlsbad, not a mineral water, but a bitter with the name Becherovka, which is produced there since 1807!

A few kilometres aside there is the 2nd spa town in Western Bohemia: Marienbad (Marianske Lazne). Beside a large spa park in the centre of the valley there are nice Art Nouveau style buildings and colonnades. The performances will be in these colonnades, where the spa guests are walking around, drinking the mineral water from different sources.

Another concert venue is in the 3rd spa town, named Franzensbad (Frantiskovy Lazne), near to Carlsbad and only a few kilometres from the German border. The music pavilion in the spa park is a very nice place for concerts.
