On our way to Prague we will have a stop at Karlovy Vary. Karlovy Vary, German Karlsbad, also spelled Carlsbad, spa city, western Czech Republic, 70 miles (113 km) west of Prague.
The surrounding highland areas were once subject to volcanic activity, which accounts for the thermal springs in the vicinity. Of more than a dozen active warm springs, the best-known and hottest, Vřídlo (German: Sprudel), gushes a geyser of hot water (162° F [72° C]) to a height of 37 feet (11 m).
Possibly known to the Romans, the spa was discovered or rediscovered and developed in about 1358 by Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, and the town was chartered in 1370. The alkaline sulfur springs, valued for treating digestive disorders and liver diseases, were patronized by many medieval rulers, princes, noblemen, and ecclesiastics; visitors’ books date from as early as 1569. Frequent guests of the spa included the composers Ludwig van Beethoven, Frederic Chopin, Johannes Brahms; the poets Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller; and Tsar Peter I the Great.
Prague is a MUST SEE! Prague has been a political, cultural, and economic center of central Europe with waxing and waning fortunes during its 1,100-year existence. Founded during the Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque eras, Prague was not only the capital of the Czech state, but also the seat of two Holy Roman Emperors and thus also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. It was an important city to the Habsburg Monarchy and its Austro-Hungarian Empire and after World War I became the capital of Czechoslovakia. The city played major roles in the Bohemian and Protestant Reformation, the Thirty Years' War, and in 20th-century history, during both World Wars and the post-war Communist era. Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square with the Prague astronomical clock, the Jewish Quarter, Petřín hill and Vyšehrad. Since 1992, the extensive historic center of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The city boasts more than ten major museums, along with numerous theatres, galleries, cinemas, and other historical exhibits Prague is the fifth most visited European city after London, Paris, Istanbul and Rome.
