Tradition of Balneotherapy in the Region of Karlovy Vary

Spa treatment has a very long tradition in this area. In the 14th century, first visitors came for their spa treatments, after King Charles IV gave orders for building the first spa resort and called it Karlovy Vary. The most significant bloom of balneotherapy, however, did not take place until the 19th century. Many of the applications from that time are used in modern spa treatment today. The current level of spa treatment in the Czech Republic is one of the best in the world. It has been developed in compliance with long term experience and scientific methods and it has been applied by top specialist therapists, highly qualified doctors, balneologists, and professional medical staff.

The spas in the Karlovy Vary Region have helped people to attain a good quality of life.
Specialised medicinal treatments, wellness and beauty programmes are prepared for spa guests.

One can also recommend spa treatment to patients recovering from an acute illness, and people trying to reduce their chronic complaints, to strengthen the immunity of their organism against stress and genetic health issues and to improve their physical and mental efficiency.
