Wellness Weekend in Karlovy Vary

Wellness Weekend in Karlovy Vary, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic (B)

Karlovy Vary has been a popular spa resort town for centuries due to its thermal hot springs and its lush green surroundings. After being cooped up at home for three months, it seemed like the perfect first trip post-coronavirus quarantine. The city did not disappoint; in fact, the biggest disappointment is that I’ve been living in the Czech Republic for four years and this was the first time I got around to seeing it. So what can you expect to do when you want a wellness weekend in Karlovy Vary? Here are some of the city’s main restorative attractions.

You might be expecting open springs for bathing all over the city, but to enjoy a relaxing time at the spa, you either need to go to one of the city’s main baths and treatment centers or stay in a hotel with a wellness area where you can soak in mineral water pools or hot tubs. Karlovy Vary spa treatments can be quite medical. In fact, some people come here with a doctor’s prescription to treat all sorts of chronic and acute ailments and stay for 3-7 days at a spa resort receiving prescribed mineral cures. Without a prescription, you can take a bubble bath (also known as a pearl bath in some places), enjoy skin wraps, carbon baths, massages, or some other specialized baths that include beer, chocolate, peat, and milk and honey. ......
