Tour description provided by Viator

This full day guided coach tour from Prague combines a visit to the world-renowned Czech spas, Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne. Discover the rich history of Karlovy Vary and its twelve springs before stopping for lunch. In the afternoon discover Marianske Lazne, which was developed at the beginning of the 19th century in a valley where many mineral-rich healing streams spring from the ground.

Your first stop will be the largest and best known Czech spa - Karlovy Vary. The founding of the town has been linked with the name of the Emperor Charles IV since 1358 when he had a hunting lodge built here. The spa has a 600 year tradition and is visited for health and relaxation. In years gone by, the spa was visited by rulers and many famous artists including Goethe, Chateaubriand, Chopin, Beethoven, Brahms and Dvorak.

During your walk along the Tepla (warm) River and majestic Neo-Renaissance colonnades, you will have the opportunity to taste different mineral waters and purchase souvenirs. Stop for lunch (included), before exploring the Becherovka museum.

Karlovy Vary is also famous for local china and glass manufacturing. Products are on display at a special exhibition and are sold at specialized shops. You'll visit the Moser glass shop as well as Thun porcelain shop.

Next, discover the famous Marianske Lazne with its curative springs and unique historical architecture. Sample the spa waters from the famous Cross Spring and visit ancient colonnades during your visit.
