All good things come in threes

Karlovy Vary is one of the most famous and historic spa resorts in the world. Together with Franzensbad and Marienbad, the town in the western Czech Republic forms part of the so-called West Bohemian Spa Triangle.


A Spa with Tradition

The water’s healing properties have been known since the Middle Ages. Initially, use was limited to bathing. Drinking cures followed. The first written account dates to 1522.


Souvenirs can wait

The first and most important purchase in Karlovy Vary is a drinking cup, to be had at almost every corner. As part of a drinking cure, it is the most important utensil for drinking the healing waters at the twelve mineral springs.

Best to Stay

Vienna House Dvořák Karlovy Vary


A bar counter with leather elements. Then a grand piano, looking exceptionally good next to the delightfully ornamented armchairs: Vienna House Dvořák is a looker, inside and out – starting and ending with the Art Nouveau façade. The same can be said for the location: exclusive. Vienna House Dvořák is situated on the river Teplá, near the drinking colonnades, i.e. right there where the springs spring forth.
