Tuff-Coated Items


Category: Traditional Products Region: Karlovy Vary and its surroundings Town: Karlovy Vary


Various items coated with thermal tuff are a distinct example of the immense power, diversity, and unlimited forces of nature. Karlovy Vary is the only place in the world where you may see this amazing phenomenon. The hot underground waters that rise to the surface contain a huge amount of mineral substances. Rapid water evaporation causes the mineral substances to sediment on everything that comes into contact with the water. This is how sinter is formed. Tuff-coated paper roses and small ceramic amphoras are undoubtedly the most original and quite typical souvenirs from Karlovy Vary.

You may buy them in the hall of the Hot Spring Colonnade or at several other souvenir shops in the spa zone of Karlovy Vary.
