Buildings along the river in Karlovy Vary (I crop the river, because you wouldn't like to see the river in it bed of concrete)

The city is well known thanks to the mineral water, it is the oldest Bohemian spa town, and probably the second most popular tourist destination in the Czech Republic. You can only go by and enjoy sulfit bath or gas inhalation therapy and to try the healing waters. There are 12 hot springs which are contained 40 chemical elements and be used for diseases of the digestive and metabolic diseases. If you suffer from diarrhea or constipation, you should visit this resort.

In addition to the health spa, the city has a most valuable architecture. The spa buildings, colonnades and pavilions were constructed in the mood of a sober Empirical and, later, Art Nouveau styles.
