Spa town with attractive architecture, beautifully kept parks and rich history.
Fairly new spa town located in the West Bohemia region developed in the 19th century, although its inhabitants were aware of the springs as early as in the 13th century. In the past, famous names such as the King Edward VIII, Frederyk Chopin, J. W. Goethe, Thomas Edison were amongs its regular visitors. If you are visiting in August, don´t miss the chance to attend the Frederyk Chopin International Music Festival.
is one of the dominant features of Mariánské Lázně. It is a pleasure listening to the classical music program played each odd hour during the summer season (end of April - end of October). In the evening you can enjoy the use of the embedded lights which adds to its beautiful atmosphere.
In and out of Mariánské Lázně you will find around 150 hot springs. In the town itself, there are around 50 - pavillons and/or collonades are built around them. Patients wth kidney/urinary infections, Oncological disorders and Metabolic disorders come for their treatment here. The most famous spring is called "The Cross Spring", originally called "Salty" - because of its taste.
The new Baroque collonade was built at the end of the 19th century. The collonade represents certain "spa town" style which at that time developed in the whole Europe.
The Town Museum
The museum holds collection from the 19th century. It is one of the oldest buildings in town, originally built as pension for spa guests and now the last standing building which reminds us of how the town might have looked like in the past. J. W. Goethe stayed there himself as a guest.
While in Mariánské Lázně, we think you shouldn´t miss this educational area. You will have a chance to see the miniatures of the most important Czech buildings (on 1:25 scale).
