The present appearance of Karlovy Vary, especially the spa centre, was influenced by the architecture from the end of the 19th century, i.e. by the historicism and Art Nouveau style.
Every year in the beginning of July in Karlovy Vary the International Film Festival is taking place.
Colorful facades everywhere
Karlovy Vary / Karlsbad is a fantastic place for people like me, searching for architecture " off the beaten path from today's lousy architecture " , made by architects with their own & unique way to creat a special facade.
Historic Spa: Karlovy Vary
"Historic Spa for tourist esp. from Eastern Europe"
Karlovy Vary (German: Karlsbad) has a long tradition as a Spa which comes from the 14 (?) fountains aof healing waters within town. There are lots of hotels of all categories for all sorts of guests.
The Russian nomenklatura was once used to go on vacations in Karlovy Vary. Since then the new Russian elite continues this tradition.
