Carlsbad - the best known Czech spa

The best known and the largest spa in the Czech republic dates back to around 1350. The Roman Emperor and Czech King Charles IV raised its status to a town in 1370. The end of the 19th century defined the architecture of Carlsbad. Thje city's best-known sights are the Church of St. Andrew, the orthodox Church of Sts. Peter and Paul, the Municipal Theatre, the Mill Colonnade (Mlýnská kolonáda) and the Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene. Carlsbad is surrounded by romantic hilly countryside – the foothills of Krušné hory.


The fame of Karlovy Vary has spread into the whole world thanks to its mineral springs. There are 12 healing springs in the spa. Their basic compositions are similar but they differ in temperature and the amount of carbon dioxide, and that is why their effects are different as well. The colder springs usually have a slightly purgative effect, while the warmer ones make the production of bile and stomach juices slower. The strongest is the Vřídlo spring, rising from the depth of 2,000-3,000 metres. The temperature reaches 73° C. The temperature of the other springs is around 40° C. The springs cure mainly metabolic disorders; they are also used for inhalations and baths.


Spa Treatment Indication

Thanks to the specific properties of the Karlovy Vary mineral springs and their virtually all-purpose use, Karlovy Vary welcomes patients with various kinds of disorders, most often of which are:

  • Digestive tract disorders
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Gout
  • Obesity
  • arodontosis (Gingivitis)
  • Locomotor system disorders
  • Diseases of the liver, pancreas, gall bladder, and biliary ducts
  • Oncological convalescents
  • Neurological diseases
  • Many others

The range of therapeutic procedures differs, to a certain degree, from sanatorium to sanatorium, always depending on the specialization and equipment of a specific facility.



Colonnades and Springs

Thermal springs made Karlovy Vary famous around the whole world. Of 79 mineral springs with varying yields, 13 are controlled and used for drinking cure.

The basic composition of various kinds of mineral water is quite similar; however, the different temperatures and contents of carbon dioxide provide different effects. The colder springs have slightly laxative effects, whereas the warmer ones have suppressing effects and inhibit the secretion of bile and gastric juices.


Spa treatment and wellness

The Karlovy Vary spa is the largest resort of its kind in the Czech Republic. It mainly provides the treatment of the digestive tract, the motor system and metabolic disorders. The city offers a large number of spa facilities where you can seek a comprehensive package of spa procedures as well as a broad variety of wellness programs. The local curative springs find all-purpose applications.


Spa procedures and their history

David Becher, Jean de Carro, and other notable physicians were very instrumental in introducing a balanced spa therapy. The treatment involves pleasant walks on colonnades and spa forest paths, drinking mineral springs right at their sourced wells, a special diet, and naturally a broad range of appropriate procedures.

Listed below are individual procedures. Moreover, you will learn something about the development of the Karlovy Vary treatment and about the ancient, sometimes rather drastic methods of treatment.

Spa treatment

The therapeutic transport provided in Karlovy Vary consists of specials procedures formulated mainly on the use of mineral springs. To bring about desired effects, spa treatment must take at least three weeks. After arriving at a spa facility, a client consults one of the spa physicians who perform an initial medical examination and prescribe the most appropriate treatment procedures. The daily schedule of massages, curative baths and drinking cure has to be strictly observed. The effects of the treatment will soon set in.


Clients come to Karlovy Vary to seek:

  • Outpatient treatment
  • Comprehensive spa treatment
  • Spa treatment partially funded with health insurance company contributions (co-pay treatment)


Outpatient treatment

This type of treatment requires that a client (patient) undergoes therapeutic procedure (baths, massages, etc.) as prescribed by their physician who can suggest outpatient treatment after injuries, surgical procedures or in case of chronic problems. Prescribed outpatient treatment is usually fully paid by a health care insurance. The number of prescribed procedures is about 10 sessions and the client comes to receive them at a spa facility from their place of stay.


Comprehensive spa treatment

This treatment is usually recommended by a physician - specialist who sends a medical report along with an application for comprehensive spa treatment to the client’s insurance company. The insurance company (or rather its panel doctor) sends the approved application to one of Karlovy Vary’s spa sanatoriums. If the respective sanatorium has available accommodation capacity, it notifies the client no later than 5 days prior to a designated treatment beginning date. Simultaneously, the client receives treatment-related information. If the addressed sanatorium is fully occupied, it forwards the client’s application to two alternative sanatoriums.

The client must start their spa treatment within one to three months from filing their application - depending on the urgency of their physical condition.

The client’s insurance company pays the costs of treatment, accommodation and catering at a standard level.


Co-pay treatment

Co-pay treatment is proposed by an attending physician who sends a medical report along with an application for comprehensive spa treatment to the client’s insurance company. If the application is approved by a panel doctor, the insurance company mails back to the client who himself chooses and contacts a spa facility to arrange for the commencement date of their spa treatment and other particulars.

The client must present themselves to commence treatment within six months from the issuance of the treatment application.

The insurance company pays only the standard spa procedures lasting 21 or 28 day while the client bears the costs of accommodation and catering.


Wellness therapy is actually very similar to spa treatment. The main difference is in the fact it is not prescribed by a physician. Every client chooses wellness programs to suit their specific needs and wishes. They can go for a two-day beauty program or a one-week comprehensive package. The combination of procedures and the time spent in a spa sanatorium is only up to the client’s choice.

List of spa and wellness procedures

„Let your worries drift away“

The first baths were actually taken by Emperor Charles Karel IV immediately after the first spring had been discovered. Ever since the spring water of Karlovy Vary has been used exclusively for this purpose. A typical medieval bath involved up to ten hours of soaking all the body or its part. The main reason was to make the skin chap so that „harmful substances“ could be washed out from the body. These drastic methods remained in place until the 16th century.

In the 21st century, you are likely to come across a half-hour bath. Every bathing procedure exploits only the Thermal Spring water (72°C) that is cooled to about 40°C for the purpose of baths. The other springs are used for drinking cure.




Bubble bath

Immerse your body or its part in thermal spring water (38°C) and let the little bubbles gently massage your skin, thus promoting its blood supply and overall muscular relaxation.

Carbonic bath

Your skin absorbs CO2 contains in thermal spring water enriched with this gas (35°C); this procedure enhances your nervous and immune system, provides better blood supply to tissues and brings about muscular relaxation.

Dry carbonic bath

Your body is sealed in a plastic bag stretching from neck to feet, the bag is gradually filled with CO2, increases the oxygen content in blood, dilates veins, and improves overall blood supply.

Peat (mud) bath

Immerse your body or its part in water containing beneficial substances and minerals obtained from peat; these substances facilitate muscular relaxation and wound healing.

Mineral bath

Mineral salts contained in water whose temperature is up to 40°C have beneficial effects on the regeneration of the body, positively affect the function, of heart and kidneys, and improve blood supply.


Whirling water massages all your body or its parts and helps to eliminate pain. The bath takes place in thermal spring water that is about 38°C.

Additive baths

Thermal spring water is added with special substances such as iodine, herbs, salts, etc. These baths convey relaxation effects and are helpful in case of skin or motor system disorders (depending on the type of admixtures).



„Becher’s drinking cure“

Mineral water began to be taken internally as late as the 16th century. This type of use is mainly attributed to the physician V. Payer who first described this method in his book dealing with the Karlovy Vary treatment. In the course of time, the drinking cure sometimes went to extremes. The daily recommended amount of water springs was even more than five liters. These alarming approaches were put to the end by the physician David Becher who was very instrumental in formulating well-balanced spa procedures.

Since Dr. Becher’s time, the spa guests have drunk no more than 1 liter of mineral water a day. Drinking cure is based on 12 springs. The so-called 13th spring - the Becher liqueur - should always be taken with moderation.

Drinking cure


Drinking cure

Specific springs are used upon a physician’s recommendation, in prescribed amounts and frequency, and over a set period of time. Every single spring is characterized with its own composition of mineral salts, ions and gases that altogether define its singular effects. Simultaneously, every client must observe the „Ten Rules of the Karlovy Vary Drinking Cure“.

„H2O - what a powerful molecule’“

The other procedures offered in Karlovy Vary make use of the pressure and temperature of water in its liquid and gaseous state.

Hydro therapy

Hydro massage (hydro puncture)

While sitting in a bathtub filled with warm thermal spring water and being massaged by the pressure developed by a water jet, your body unfolds in relaxation, the blood supply improves and the proper function of the lymphatic system is restored.

VIP-visitors, Dates, History

The foundation and development of Carlsbad has always been inseparably connected with the soothing curative effect of its warm mineral springs. They marked the history, architecture, economy and the whole spirit of the city. The springs have fascinated people and have stimulated them since the oldest times. A story of the fantasy world is the popular story according to which Carlsbad springs were discovered by Charles IV, the Czech king and Roman Emperor, at a deer hunting in the middle of the 14th century. The foundation of the spa city at the confluence of the Ohře and Teplá Rivers in the reign of Charles IV is sure not to be such an accidental and romantic act as said in the old story, but almost a regular development result for a long-known place with a curative tradition.

This historical health resort within the most beautiful part of the Czech Republic lies in the charming valley of the river Teplá, where the river Ohre joins the river Teplá. The picturesque old town, with its gorgeous and rich buildings in gold, white and soft pastel shades along the riverside, nestles amongst gentle wooded hills. The prosperity of the town is due to 14 thermal springs, whose healing effect was known already in the middle ages.

Even nowadays, the soothing water is bottled and shipped to destinations all over the world. The character of the health resort is determined by the famous White Colonnades and by the strolling visitors relishing the hot bubbling water from china cups specially crafted in this region. Once you've been here, you will come back again.

Quite a number of famous 'repeat offenders' realized this and left their marks, which can be found throughout the town. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz, Johann Sebastian Bach, Emperor Karl VI., Czar Peter the Great, Johann Gottfried Herder, Friedrich Schiller, Karl Marx, Franz Liszt, Sigmund Freud, Theodor Fontane, Antonin Dvorak, Johannes Brahms, Richard Wagner, Edvard Grieg, Morgan Freeman, Madeleine Albright and Michael Douglas are only a few.

A lot of those celebrities established a second home here, and their magnificent mansions can still be admired. As did Alexander von Humboldt, who build a splendid residence on a slope right next to the gentle murmuring Teplá river. The generously designed Villa in classical style was built in 1872 and carefully rebuilt and restored in 2006, preserving its historical charm, and turned into a luxurious 4 Star Superior Hotel – the Humboldt Park Hotel & Spa.

Every room has its individual and unique style. Following their historical model, the use of precious materials, such as heavy fabrics, fine woods and carpets unite to highest luxury. Every room is decorated with paintings and extravagant Trompe-l'oeil paintings. Several rooms have a balcony with a view over the Teplá river and the pictu-resque old town to the right hand side. All rooms are, of course, equipped with the highest technical standards, such as flat- screen TV's, wireless LAN and high-speed internet connections.

The Zámecké lázně (Castle Spa) is located in the heart of the Carlsbad spa zone, in the vicinity of the Market and the Hot Spring Colonnade. Zámecké lázně (the Castle Bath) is one of the most beautiful spa centres in Europe and to its guests, it provides a wide range of curative and relaxation programmes.

The first project of a balneologic facility designed in the style of architectonic modernism was effected in Karlovy Vary on the threshold of World War I, i.e. at the peak of bloom of the development and the “Golden Age” of the town. The building of a unique complex of the Castle Colonnades commenced in the very heart of the spa zone, where the most precious Carlsbad springs rise from the ground. One of the fundamental ideas of the new structure was to connect the colonnade leading around the Upper Castle Spring with the Market Colonnade, and thereby, to build a worthy abode for the ruler of all Carlsbad springs, which has been safeguarding all the natural curative resources for next generations at this site from of old.

In 1909, architect B. Ohmann was successful in an large-scale competition and the Castle Colonnade was built in the course of years 1911 - 1913 according to his project. It was preserved unchanged until the beginning of a radical reconstruction and conversion into the Castle Spa in 2000. In this case as well, B. Ohmann proved his mastery in applying a ingenious combination of various architectonic styles, when leaving a charming roundel in the upper part of the structure inspired by antique architecture. As a symbol of balneology, this roundel remains as one of the beautiful and characteristic features of traditional craftsman ship in Karlovy Vary to the present day.

While preserving all the essential architectonic elements, a radical reconstruction of all the premises of the Castle Colonnade was executed in 2000 and 2001, generously converting the structure into a comprehensive curative facility called the Castle Spa. The fundamental credo of the Castle Spa is returning to traditional Carlsbad spa treatment. Providing comfort, atmosphere, and individual care – all that the visitors of the spa in Karlovy Vary had been used to in the era of the “Golden Age”. Everyone can find this (as well as something extra) in a more than abundant extent in Karlovy Vary, especially owing to the Castle Spa.

The features that distinguish Castle Spa from any other similar facility particularly are:

  • Return to the well-established tradition of Carlsbad spa treatment in a central balneologic facility Carlsbad, as it truly is the only place, where clients are provided with comprehensive care, including the maximum exploitation of the original Carlsbad curative thermal mineral water
  • The Castle Spa uses its own two springs – the Upper and Lower Castle Spring
  • The most precious gem of the Castle Spa is its pool with thermal mineral water, the only one of its kind in the Czech Republic
  • Individual client approach
  • State-of-the art technology for treatment
  • An absolutely matchless ambience achieved owing to the combination of extensive natural rocky surfaces and architectonic modernism of the early 20th century
  • Relaxation in the curative pool is available to every visitor as an extra procedure free of charge
  • Every client completes his or her daily dose of prescribed procedures during a single two-hour session
  • The Spirit of the Springs oversees provided treatment
  • And one more additional surprise...
