MARIANBAD

MARIÁNSKÉ  LÁZNE SPA

 

The town of Mariánské Lázně is situated in a picturesque valley in the midst of beautiful nature. Clean air, spa woods, magnificent architecture, rich cultural, sport and social life create a unique atmosphere of this much sought after spa town.

A traditional spa cure in Mariánské Lázně is based on a genial effect of natural medicinal sources – mineral springs, peat, natural gas CO2 and excellent climatic conditions.

A spa stay in Mariánské Lázně is suitable for curing of a wide range of illnesses – locomotive system disorders, kidney and urinary tract disorders, respiratory, gynaecologic, metabolic and oncological disorders. Here you can find indications and counter-indications of spa cures.

Mariánské Lázně is the second largest Czech spa, which is very rich in mineral springs. There are forty springs within the area and one hundred in the immediate vicinity. The land consisting of today's spa belonged to the Premonstrate Monastery of Teplá, whose abbot K. K. Reitenberger launched the construction of the original baths early in the 19th century, as envisioned by the monastery doctor J. J Nehr. According to the grandiose designs of the architect V. Skalník, terrain transformations were carried out, and parks were created. Today these, together with the numerous springs, represent the essential features of the town. In 1866, Mariánské Lázně was declared a city and by the beginning of the 20th century ranked among the most important spa centers in Europe.

The pseudo-Baroque cast-iron Colonnade from 1889 is the main promenade of the spa and an important architectural monument. The water from the Cross, Caroline's and Rudolph's Springs is piped to the Colonnade for the drinking cures. The Singing Fountain, located in front of the Colonnade, also captures the attention of visitors. The Ferdinand's, Forest and Ambrose's Springs are among the best known springs in Mariánské Lázně.

The spa pavilions were mostly built in the classicist and neo-Renaissance style, while most of the buildings in the spa district of the town bear the imprints of the Art Nouveau style. The Church of the Assumption rises next to the Colonnade. The Russian Church of St. Vladimir and the Anglican Church are located behind the Main Avenue, in the western part of the town.

Curiosity: The Singing Fountain in front of the main colonnade performs every odd hour to the accompaniment of music, and at 9 and 10 p.m. with a light show.

Indications

The range of diseases treated in Mariánské Lázně, unlike other spas, is very wide thanks to the diverse chemical composition of the mineral springs.

Diseases treated in Mariánské Lázně:

    • kidney and urinary tract diseases,
    • nerve disorders, organic nerve diseases,
    • disorders of the digestive system,
    • metabolic diseases and disorders of the endocrine system,
    • diseases of the respiratory tract,
    • skin diseases,
    • diseases of the locomotive system.

Spa Procedures

Drinking Cures
The amount of mineral water prescribed per patient varies according to the diagnoses and the patient's health condition, usually about 750 ml daily in several doses. Patients suffering from bladder stones and chronic inflammations of the urinary tract are advised to increase their water intake - which is also an important prevention factor - and to bring this habit home with them. Nevertheless, only a small amount of acidulous water from Mariánské Lázně is drunk or bottled; the greater part of it is used for the carbon dioxide baths.
Carbon Dioxide Baths
Special bathtubs are used for the carbon dioxide baths since the minerals cause considerable corrosion. The approximate temperature of the water is 32 – 36 °C. Carbon dioxide is absorbed through the skin and dilates the blood vessels, which has a positive influence on the cardiovascular system and reduces peripheral vascular resistance. The carbon dioxide baths are prescribed to treat kidney diseases, vegetative dystonia, cardiovascular diseases and others. The baths have a favorable effect on the body and blood circulation. They thus form an integral part of the hydrotherapy applied in Mariánské Lázně.

Gas Baths
The carbon dioxide from Mary's Spring is used for the gas baths. This gas consists of CO2 (99 %), inert gases and H2S. When taking a gas bath, the patient is immersed in the spring gas, which is then absorbed through the skin. Unlike in classical baths, the patient is not exposed to hydrostatic pressure.

Gas Injections
CO2 gas injections (also called insulfations) are used to treat, among other things, various types of skin diseases. Gas injections began to be regularly applied in Mariánské Lázně after the Second World War.

Peat and Mud Baths and Packs
Peat and mud are traditional natural medical resources. After being warmed up, the natural peat or mud is applied in the form of a pack or wrap. The peat used to be collected directly from Mary's Spring.

HOTEL WESTEND ****

According to the legend the city of Karlovy Vary was discovered and founded by the Czech king Charles IV and the written history begins on 14.8.1370, when the residential place received the status and rights of one kings town. All following sovereigns confirmed these privileges. The 18 century was the time of full boom and glory for the spring town for many many years. The biggest publicity boost for Karlovy Vary were the two visits by Russian czar Peter the Great in 1711 and 1712.
The period around 1900 is a period of the greatest blossom of the thermal town, a period of a construction of new traffic routes, of grandiose and sometimes even pompous buildings, period of luxury and gentility, of helpfulness and hospitality. In addition to that, there is a five - hundred – years lasting spa water cure and an excellent reputation of the romantic place, enhanced by frequent visits of important and famous persons. Karlovy Vary became not only the worldly spa but also European centre of a high life in central Europe. Visiting the famous spa was literally a matter of prestige for all rich people as well as for the ruling aristocracy.
Under a strong Viennese influence a metropolitan spirit comes to the spa. Buildings of unprecedented dimensions with better facilities are built in the town. The construction of the Military Spa Sanatorium in 1855 is among the first extensive ones, following by Baths no. III and IV. In the years 1878 – 80, the pompous stone colonnade that was designed by architect Josef Zitek is finished. The Viennese architects Hermann Helmer and Ferdinand Fellner designed between 1875 – 1914 the most distinct outlines in the lovely face of the thermal town. In the year 1886 the new Municipal Theatre is finished and opened after the project from Helmer and Fellner, the Pupp Hotel complex starts to rebuilt.
This boisterous building progress is interrupted in 1890 by a terrible natural disaster. After a long lasting raise in the whole territory of Western Bohemia, and especially in Tepla river basin, a catastrophic situation set on November 23th and 24th in the spa valley. The flood wave strake the town in an unprecedented measure. The waves of the wild water reached nearly five meters high and destroyed everything that they met on their way. After the autumn rains a cruel winter came.
A stately building of the Imperial Bath was erected in the years 1893 – 95, on the place of the old brewery. The spa treatment concentrated into five main baths buildings. The social high life took place around the „Poštovní dvůr“( Post Yard), on the Richmond Hotel´s terraces, in „Švýcarský dvůr“ (Swiss Court) Hotel´s garden restaurant, in the old Sanssouci Hotel, in Pupp Grandhotel, in the Theatre, at the music salon in the Municipal park and in Orfeum Variety with revue programmes.
In the years 1875 – 1897 the Anglican church, a Jewish synagogue and the Russian Orthodox church were gradually bulit for worshippers. The west villadom Carlsbad „Westend“ was built in between these three churches. The architecture of this housing estate thus expresses the craving for originality and worldliness. Especially the large buildings of Savoy Spa Sanatorium complex - Kleopatra and Carlton villas designed by Viennese architect A. Bayer in 1897 – stand out among dozens of unique villas. A rebuilt Richmond Hotel with its terraces and vast garden is opened at the opposite end of the spa. The tumultuous construction activity reached its height by finishing the dominant „modern castle“ above the town – Imperial Hotel. The hotel was connected with the spa district by one tunnel funicular and one surface funicular.
With the shots of Sarajevo – it was the end of the wonderful period Geyser town’s prosperity, the end of the real „Golden age“ of Carlsbad. The town suffered a lot of damages during the two world wars.

The important visitors:
W.Goethe, F. Schiller, T. Körner, L.van Beethoven, N. Paganini,
N.V.Gogol, F. Liszt, A.Stifter, S.Freud, J.Brahms,T.Fontaine,
A.Dvořák, J.S.Bach, Casanova, F.Chopin, J.E.Purkyně, E.Grieg,
F. Kafka, R.Wagner etc.

Among the traditional symbols and specialities of Karlovy Vary belong the famous and unique Geyser Vřídlo, statue of chamois, upon so called Deer jump hill, herbal liqueur Becherovka which has been made here since 1807, sweet waffles called „Oplatky“, Mosser crystal glass high quality china, petrified rose of mineral rock and the international film festival. Karlovy Vary is the most famous spa town in Czech republic.

The building boom at second half of the 19th century in spirit of secession and historicism had the biggest influence on looks of the town itself. The very own villa district, later on named „Westend“, was built at the beginning of nineties of the 19th century. The Westend is very unique and valuable architectonic collection of World and European architecture.
A palace hotel Bristol became the first building.
Between the years 1895 – 96 after the two design variants by Wiennese architekt Alfred Bayer, the works on Savoy Westend Hotel started in 1897. Villas Rusalka, Kleopatra and Carlton were built at the same time. The Persian shah Musaffer – Eddin visited Savoy Westend Hotel in 1902 and the first president of Czechoslovakia between the years 1923 – 33.
Some of the villas were transferred into apartment building, kindergartens etc., after the second world war. In spite of all that, these villas were well enough preserved and saved.
Their architectonic nature finishes pleasantly the mood of this spa place. One can feel somewhat pleasant , layback mood and unforgettable charm of the architecture along with surroundings in this particular part of town till these days.
