Moser glassworks

Ludwig Moser establised the glass store and the engraving shop in the 19th century. It has become one of the most known luxury Czech glass manufacturer in the world. If you have time, definitely visit the Moser Museum.

If you want to experience the true festival atmosphere with thousands of spectacors and watch movies every day, this is the best opportunity to do so. 

Becherovka

The Becherovka liquor origins go back to the beginning of the 19th century. It is made of herbs and spices and its original purpose was to cure the stomach illness, and the patient´s soul! Czechs usually drink it after their dinner to digest the meal.

Karlovy Vary wafers

The first wafers were prepared in around 1800. The present wafers´s look differs - two sugary wafers are layered on top of each other and in between you will get different flavours (hazelnut, vanilla..) combined with the Karlovy Vary spring waters and salt. They taste fantastic both hot and cold. Great present from Czech Republic, too!
