Mill Colonnade in Karlovy Vary

 

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

 

The Mill Colonnade (Mlýnská kolonáda) is probably the most popular colonnade in the city. It was built next to the Spa III (Lázně III) building by the famous architect Josef Zítek between 1871 and 1881. Consequently, in 1893, the colonnade was extended to the Rock Spring (Skalní pramen) and today measures 132 meters. This covered walkway, which is supported by 124 Corinthian columns, houses an orchestra pit and five mineral springs. The walls are decorated with allegorical reliefs and the roof terraces are home to 12 statues.

Springs:

  • Rock Spring (Skalní pramen)
  • Libuše Spring (Pramen Libuše)
  • Springs of Princes Wenceslas I and Wenceslas II (Pramen knížete Václava I., Pramen knížete Václava II.)
  • Mill Spring (Mlýnský pramen)
  • Rusalka Spring (Pramen Rusalka)
