Travel Tips for Karlovy Vary
Goethe in 1786 & Mozart in 1659 ??
It seems to be a favorite local custom to quote famous guest's names as a kind of advertisment for the hotel or pension.
And thank god, they came to Karlovy Vary / Karlsbad quite often and stayed in different places...
...makes some good business for many hotels
The Mill colonnade
The Mill Colonnade, called also Zitek's Colonnade, is the largest Karlovy Vary colonnade and one of the symbols of the town. The New Renaissance Style building is 132 meters long and 13 meters wide. It covers five springs - The Mill Spring, The Rock Spring, The Libuse's, The Count Wenceslas', and The Water Nymph's Springs.
First impression of Karlovy Vary is that it doesn't look as a typical Bohemian town. The houses, hotels and the horse drawn tourist carriage reminded me of a typical Austrian / German town. The main attraction of KV is the natural spas. A huge modern glass building was erected on one of the spas and inside this glass room you can see water erupting 2 storyes high. This water is famous for artrithes patients. Kettle like jugs are sold as souveniers. These are used by filling the ceramic jug from a one of the taps scattered around the village and drink it from the spout. I didn't taste it but my wife told me that it tastes like sea water. After we walked around the shopping complex in the same building we had a walk to the market. Later we relaxed by a duck pond and after our energy was restored we headed to the forest.
