Market Colonnade in Karlovy Vary

 

Category: Spa Architecture Region: Karlovy Vary and its surroundings Town: Karlovy Vary

 

The Swiss style white wooden structure of the Market Colonnade (Tržní kolonáda) is the work of the architects Fellner and Helmer in 1883. Built with a saddle roof, the structure has 3 wooden side walls with a pillar arcade as its front side wall. The colonnade is decorated with lace motifs carved into wood. A relief illustrating the legend of discovering the springs can be seen just above the spring vase of the Charles IV Spring.

Originally, the Market Colonnade was only intended as a makeshift; nevertheless, after more than 100 years of its existence, the city council decided to preserve it and commissioned its reconstruction.

Springs:

  • Market Spring (Tržní pramen)
  • Charles IV Spring (Pramen Karla IV.)
